NAME

amarchiver - Create, extract or list amanda archive

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

amarchiver --version|--create|--extract|--list [--verbose] [--file file] [filename]...

DESCRIPTION

Amarchiver manipulates amanda archive file. On creation, amarchiver doesnt recurse into directories. If a filename specifies a directory, it will be ignored. If it specifies a character device, amarchiver reads the device and archives the data. If a filename specifies a named pipe, amarchiver reads the named pipe and archives the data.

Note that this tool is more limited than the Amanda archive library, and may not be appropriate for some archive files -- particularly those which use non-strings in their filenames.

OPTIONS

--version

print the amarchiver version

--create

Create an amanda archive. Only the supplied filenames are included. With one --verbose, lists the filenames. With two, lists the filenames and sizes.

--list

List the filenames in an amanda archive. No additional filenames are allowed on the command line.

--extract

Extract an amanda archive. If filenames are supplied, only those files are extracted. Files are created in the current directory, suffixed with a dot (.) and the attribute ID.

--verbose

Give more information.

--file file

Create, list or extract from the given file instead of stdin/stdout.
