bup-ftp - 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’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.
- cd dirname
- change to a different working directory
- print the path of the current working directory
- cat filenames...
- 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.
- mget filenames...
- 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
