Confstore is a configuration backup utility. Confstore scans your system for all recognised configuration files and then stores them in a archive. Confstore can also restore configuration from a previously created archive.

Linux/UNIX based OS (confstore is currently developed and tested on Gentoo Linux)
Perl 5.x (tested on 5.8.0, 5.8.2 and 5.8.4 but should run on most versions)

Optional requirements:

bzip2 (for bzip compression)
gzip (for gzip compression)
Getopt::Long (*should* come standard with Perl)
Net::FTP (if you are planning on using confstores FTP module (should come standard))
MIME::Lite (if you want to use the Email module)
Digest::MD5 (if you are using the logging function which creates md5 checksums)
Crypt::CipherSaber (if you want to encrypt your archives)

What's New in This Release:
When 'v' is used in restoration, both files are viewed so the user can see the difference
Lots of bugs in wildcard support are gone
Environmental variables such as $HOME can now be used in definition files
All module options are now in one place; cs.conf
Added more definitions to locations.def
