While s3curl.pl allows command line access to Amazon S3, it will only work one file at a time, we have to read XML for “directory” listings, and requires we know details about S3 (like how to list more than 1000 objects in a single request, or how to list a “directory”/start with a prefix). s3cmd, from Michal Ludvig, gives a much simpler way of interfacing with Amazon S3 on the command line.
