Does rsync handle resource forks?

Right now I use Synchronize Plus or SilverKeeper and I'm not really happy with either one of them.

    rsync-x is a replacement for rsync. It hand;es resource forks and all of the other intricacies of HFS+

    You install it and it replaces rsync, so you use the same command "rsync" in the terminal.

    haven't tested it with Panther but since it is the backbone of my backup system, you better believe I will be testing it shortly.

    Nope. rsync and cvs both clobber resource forks. Not a big deal for many file formats, but for a few, it's a huge deal. Luckily, all of the file formats that I work with don't suffer when their resource forks are stripped.
