vacget, vacput - venti archive utilities


vacget [ -vdpt ] [ -a addr ] vac:score
vacput [ -vd ] [ -a addr ] [ -b blocksize ] [ -n name ] path ...


Vacget retrieves a venti archive from a venti server to the current working directory.

Vacput writes a venti archive to a venti server. The paths are walked recursively and all files and directories written to the archive. Temporary files, i.e. those with the DMTMP bit set, are skipped. Writing only changed files relative to a previously written archive is not implemented.

Print debug messages.
Try to preserve file permissions and owner/group. Only for vacget.
Be verbose. Prints files as they are being retrieved or written.
List files, do not write them. Only for vacget.
-a address
Dial address instead of the default venti server.
-b blocksize
Use blocks with blocksize bytes instead of the default 8192 byte blocks. Only for vacput.
-n name
Use name as the name in the root block. Only for vacput.
