bup-ls - list the contents of a bup repository SYNOPSIS
bup ls [-s] [-a] DESCRIPTION
bup ls lists files and directories in your bup repository using the same directory hierarchy as they would have with bup-fuse(1). The top level directory contains the branch (corresponding to the -n option in bup save), the next level is the date of the backup, and subsequent levels correspond to files in the backup. When bup ls is asked to output on a tty, it formats its output in columns so that it can list as much as possible in as few lines as possi- ble. However, when bup ls is asked to output to something other than a tty (say you pipe the output to another command, or you redirect it to a file), it will output one file name per line. This makes the listing easier to parse with external tools. Note that bup ls doesn't show hidden files by default and one needs to use the -a option to show them. Files are hidden when their name begins with a dot. For example, on the topmost level, the special directories named .commit and .tag are hidden directories. Once you have identified the file you want using bup ls, you can view its contents using bup join or git show. OPTIONS
-s, --hash show hash for each file/directory. -a, --all show hidden files. EXAMPLE
bup ls /myserver/latest/etc/profile bup ls -a / SEE ALSO

bup-random - generate a stream of random output SYNOPSIS
bup random [-S seed] [-fv] DESCRIPTION
bup random produces a stream of pseudorandom output bytes to stdout. Note: the bytes are not generated using a cryptographic algorithm and should never be used for security. Note that the stream of random bytes will be identical every time bup random is run, unless you provide a different seed value. This is intentional: the purpose of this program is to be able to run repeatable tests on large amounts of data, so we want identical data every time. bup random generates about 240 megabytes per second on a modern test system (Intel Core2), which is faster than you could achieve by read- ing data from most disks. Thus, it can be helpful when running microbenchmarks. OPTIONS
the number of bytes of data to generate. Can be used with the suffices k, M, or G to indicate kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes, respectively. -S, --seed=seed use the given value to seed the pseudorandom number generator. The generated output stream will be identical for every stream seeded with the same value. The default seed is 1. A seed value of 0 is equivalent to 1. -f, --force generate output even if stdout is a tty. (Generating random data to a tty is generally considered ill-advised, but you can do if you really want.) -v, --verbose print a progress message showing the number of bytes that has been output so far.
