Project Description

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
