That's an unusual use of the word "slurping", but I get what you say from the
subject line.

I can recommend these tools:

1. rsync - http://rsync.samba.org/ ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync ; My
favourite rsync configuration is:

rsync -a --progress -v --inplace

But you may wish to add --delete-after to it.

2. lftp is a useful FTP/SFTP client that can upload entire trees and is
open-source: http://lftp.yar.ru/ .

You can implement something similar to LFTP in Perl, but it will take some
work, and rsync is generally better.

There is no IGLU Cabal! Its members can be arranged in N! orders to form N!
different Cabals. The algorithm to find which order formulates the correct
IGLU Cabal is NP‐Complete.
