Compare and copy files - Mac Applications & Software

Hi I'm looking for a tool (freeware or shareware) where I can compare two directories or two files and copy the newer one from one directory to the other. Do you know something like that? Thanks Hans...

    There's an OS X version with a GUI.

    Hey, that's really useful - opens up a great tool to a larger
    audience. Kudos to whoever wrote the GUI wrapper.

    Hi

    I found another one, XCopy. You will found it on
    http://www.mac-ware.de/home/frame.php3?url=download.htm. The site is written
    in german and the tool costs about 15$ for private using. But its anywayl a
    useful tool.

    This version's useful even if you don't care about the GUI. It installs
    a modified version of the command-line rsync that correctly handles
    Macintosh resource forks.
