bup-ftp - ftp-like client for navigating bup repositories SYNOPSIS
bup ftp is a command-line tool for navigating bup repositories. It has commands similar to the Unix ftp(1) command. The file hierarchy is the same as that shown by bup-fuse(1) and bup-ls(1). 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. COMMANDS
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 ar- chive to its left. cd dirname change to a different working directory pwd 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.) help print a list of available commands quit exit the bup ftp client EXAMPLE
$ 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 'myfile' bup> quit SEE ALSO

bup-tag - tag a commit in the bup repository SYNOPSIS
bup tag bup tag <tag name> <committish> bup tag -d <tag name> DESCRIPTION
bup tag lists, creates or deletes a tag in the bup repository. A tag is an easy way to retreive a specific commit. It can be used to mark a specific backup for easier retrieval later. When called without any arguments, the command lists all tags that can be found in the repository. When called with a tag name and a com- mit ID or ref name, it creates a new tag with the given name, if it doesn't already exist, that points to the commit given in the second argument. When called with '-d' and a tag name, it removes the given tag, if it exists. bup exposes the contents of backups with current tags, via any command that lists or shows backups. They can be found under the /.tag directory. For example, the 'ftp' command will show the tag named 'tag1' under /.tag/tag1. Tags are also exposed under the branches from which they can be reached. For example, if you create a tag named 'important' under branch 'computerX', you will also be able to retrieve the contents of the backup that was tagged under /computerX/important. This is done as a convenience, and should the branch 'computerX' be deleted, the contents of the tagged backup will be available through /.tag/important as long as the tag is not deleted. OPTIONS
-d, --delete delete a tag EXAMPLE
$ bup tag new-puppet-version hostx-backup $ bup tag new-puppet-version $ bup ftp "ls /.tag/new-puppet-version" files.. $ bup tag -d new-puppet-version SEE ALSO
