ABacoD is an automatic backup script.
Transfers files and directory renaming them with a configurable logic.
Source path can contain wildchars:
* :every string
? :every char
[...] :one specified char
Destination path can contain:
^n^ :replaced with the result of n-th expansion in source path (starting from 0)
^d^ :replaced with hour/date of the trensfer (the format is configurable)
Accept command line argumnt and/or a configuration file. Command line argument overwrite corresponding configuration files. Append implies deletion of source file.
Does not implements loops, therefore you must use cron or similar systems.
IMPORTANT NOTE: - Abacod deletes files! Testing parameters with the DUMMY (or -t) flag is safety. More safety is run with a user whose rights are the minumum possible.
