VIRECOVER(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			     VIRECOVER(8)

NAME
     virecover -- report recovered vi edit sessions

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/libexec/virecover

DESCRIPTION
     The virecover utility sends emails to users who have vi(1) recovery files.

     This email gives the name of the file that was saved for recovery and instructions for
     recovering most, if not all, of the changes to the file.  This is done by using the -r
     option with vi(1).  See the -r option in vi(1) for details.

     If the backup files have the execute bit set or are zero length, then they have not been
     modified, so virecover deletes them to clean up.  virecover also removes recovery files that
     are corrupted, zero length, or do not have a corresponding backup file.

     virecover is normally run automatically at boot time using /etc/rc.d/virecover.

FILES
     /var/tmp/vi.recover/recover.*  vi(1) recovery files
     /var/tmp/vi.recover/vi.*	    vi(1) editor backup files

SEE ALSO
     vi(1), rc.conf(5)

HISTORY
     This script, previously known as recover.script, is from nvi and was added to NetBSD in
     1996.  It was renamed in 2001.
