ddstool - simple shell script to manage dds tapes


ddstool <command> <options>


This manual page documents briefly the ddstool command. This manual page was written for
the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used by others), because the original
program does not have a manual page.

Since the version of tar now shipping in Debian does not contain the patch necessary to
support the --record-file option, this program will do nothing useful unless you're
running a locally patched version of tar.

First label a tape:

ddstool create-label 'unique-string and more'

To archive something:

ddstool append pathnames...

To delete the old index-files and make a new label:

ddstool new-label 'unique-string and more strings'

Each index is stored by the pathnames:

$A/$unique-string.$file-number (soft link)

$A/$timestamp-of-the-tapelabel.$file-number (file)

Use ddstool online using onworks.net services
