Enhance a Bash Script

In Progress

We have a simple shell script that runs once per day and performs 3 primary tasks:

1) Syncs a batch of files/folders from Amazon's S3 service to a local directory on the server

2) Encodes those files to a common format (WAV/FLAC -> MP3) and uploads to another server

3) Archives the original source files

This script, while functional, needs to be enhanced in several ways:

- The "efficiency" this script can be improved, avoiding unnecessary loops

- It must better handle exceptions and error reporting

- **Most importantly, it needs to be amended to handle directories and files (at present it can handle only files)

And that's pretty much it. If you are a Linux shell scripting expert or perl developer then this is a perfect project for you!

Required/Recommended skillset:

- Unix/Linux Shell Scripting

- perl
