Ftp-like client for navigating bup repositories
Note: if your system has the python-readline library installed, you can use the <tab> key to complete filenames while navigating your backup data. This will save you a lot of typing.
The following commands are available inside bup ftp:
ls [-s][-a] [path]
print the contents of a directory. If no path argument is given, the current directory\[aq]s contents are listed. If -a is given, also include hidden files (files which start with a . character). If -s is given, each file is displayed with its hash from the bup archive to its left.
change to a different working directory
print the path of the current working directory
print the contents of one or more files to stdout
get filename localname
download the contents of filename and save it to disk as localname. If localname is omitted, uses filename as the local name.
download the contents of the given filenames and stores them to disk under the same names. The filenames may contain Unix filename globs (*, ?, etc.)
print a list of available commands
exit the bup ftp client
$ bup ftp bup> ls mybackup/ yourbackup/ bup> cd mybackup/ bup> ls 2010-02-05-185507\@ 2010-02-05-185508\@ latest\@ bup> cd latest/ bup> ls (...etc...) bup> get myfile Saving \[aq]myfile\[aq] bup> quit
Part of the bup(1) suite.
