NAME ^

rsybak - Backup files/directories with histories, using rsync

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.23 of rsybak (from Perl distribution File-RsyBak), released on 2015-01-03.

SYNOPSIS ^

Usage:

 % rsybak [options] <source> <target>

Examples:

 % rsybak /home/jajang/mydata /backup/jajang/mydata

OPTIONS ^

* marks required options.

--config-path=s

Set path to configuration file.

Can be specified multiple times.

--config-profile=s

Set configuration profile to use.

--extra-dir

Whether to force creation of source directory in target.

If set to 1, then backup(source => '/a', target => '/backup/a') will create another 'a' directory in target, i.e. /backup/a/current/a. Otherwise, contents of a/ will be directly copied under /backup/a/current/.

Will always be set to 1 if source is more than one, but default to 0 if source is a single directory. You can set this to 1 to so that behaviour when there is a single source is the same as behaviour when there are several sources.

COMPLETION ^

This script has shell tab completion capability with support for several shells.

bash

To activate bash completion for this script, put:

 complete -C rsybak rsybak

in your bash startup (e.g. ~/.bashrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is recommended, however, that you install shcompgen which allows you to activate completion scripts for several kinds of scripts on multiple shells. Some CPAN distributions (those that are built with Dist::Zilla::Plugin::GenShellCompletion) will even automatically enable shell completion for their included scripts (using shcompgen) at installation time, so you can immadiately have tab completion.

tcsh

To activate tcsh completion for this script, put:

 complete rsybak 'p/*/`rsybak`/'

in your tcsh startup (e.g. ~/.tcshrc). Your next shell session will then recognize tab completion for the command. Or, you can also directly execute the line above in your shell to activate immediately.

It is also recommended to install shcompgen (see above).

other shells

For fish and zsh, install shcompgen as described above.
