Write Data Safely to a Directory
safecat implements Dan Bernstein's maildir algorithm, copying standard input safely to a specified directory. With safecat, the user is offered two assurances. First, if safecat returns successfully, then all data is guaranteed to be saved in the destination directory. Second, if a file exists in the destination directory, placed there by safecat, then the file is guaranteed to be complete.
