AMGETCONF(8)									     AMGETCONF(8)

       amgetconf - look up amanda.conf variables

       amgetconf [ config ] parameter

       Amgetconf  looks  up parameters in amanda.conf, the Amanda configuration file, or from the
       build and runtime environment, and returns their corresponding value.

       If config is not specified, amgetconf assumes it  is  being  run  from  the  configuration
       directory and that amanda.conf is present.

       If  parameter  begins with build., the (case insensitive) string following the period is a
       build environment variable.  Variables without a value (e.g. XFSDUMP on a system that does
       not  support  that  type of file system) will not report an error and will return an empty
       string as the value.  Flag variables (e.g. USE_AMANDAHOSTS) will return 1 if the  flag  is
       set or an empty string if it is not.

       If parameter begins with dbopen., the string following the period is a program name and an
       Amanda debug file will be created for the caller.  The name of the file is returned.

       If parameter begins with dbclose., the string following the period is a program name  pre-
       viously used with dbopen., followed by a colon (:) and the previously opened file name.

       See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda.

       Find out the path to the log file directory:

	      % amgetconf DailySet1 logdir

       Find out the current tape type:

	      % amgetconf DailySet1 tapetype

       Find out the default configuration directory:

	      % amgetconf DailySet1 build.CONFIG_DIR

       Create, use and close a debug file in a script:

	      % set debug_file = `amgetconf DailySet1 dbopen.myscript`
	      % echo debug information >> $debug_file
	      % amgetconf DailySet1 dbclose.myscript:$debug_file

       amgetconf: no such parameter "param"
	      Parameter  param is not a known keyword (e.g. not a valid amanda.conf keyword).  In
	      this case, amgetconf will write "BUGGY" to stdout as the value.
