Pipeline #6907 canceled with stages
A script to transfer a tree of data files from a remote server to a local
computer. This only runs on a destination un*x system and requires an ssh key
pair to be shared between the systems. See
for details on how to do this between a Monash Linux machine and ASCI.

This is a possible option for checksumming.
