bup-newliner - make sure progress messages don't overlap with output SYNOPSIS
<any command> 2>&1 | bup newliner DESCRIPTION
bup newliner is run automatically by bup. You shouldn't need it unless you're using it in some other program. Progress messages emitted by bup (and some other tools) are of the form "Message ### content", that is, a status message containing a vari- able-length number, followed by a carriage return character and no newline. If these messages are printed more than once, they overwrite each other, so what the user sees is a single line with a continually-updating number. This works fine until some other message is printed. For example, progress messages are usually printed to stderr, but other program mes- sages might be printed to stdout. If those messages are shorter than the progress message line, the screen will be left with weird looking artifacts as the two messages get mixed together. bup newliner prints extra space characters at the right time to make sure that doesn't happen. If you're running a program that has problems with these artifacts, you can usually fix them by piping its stdout and its stderr through bup newliner. BUP

bup-fuse - mount a bup repository as a filesystem SYNOPSIS
bup fuse [-d] [-f] [-o] <mountpoint> DESCRIPTION
bup fuse opens a bup repository and exports it as a fuse(7) userspace filesystem. This feature is only available on systems (such as Linux) which support FUSE. WARNING: bup fuse is still experimental and does not enforce any file permissions! All files will be readable by all users. When you're done accessing the mounted fuse filesystem, you should unmount it with umount(8). OPTIONS
-d, --debug run in the foreground and print FUSE debug information for each request. -f, --foreground run in the foreground and exit only when the filesystem is unmounted. -o, --allow-other permit other users to access the filesystem. Necessary for exporting the filesystem via Samba, for example. EXAMPLE
rm -rf /tmp/buptest mkdir /tmp/buptest sudo bup fuse -d /tmp/buptest ls /tmp/buptest/*/latest ... umount /tmp/buptest SEE ALSO
