AMARCHIVER(8)		System Administration Commands		 AMARCHIVER(8)

NAME
       amarchiver - Create, extract or list amanda archive

SYNOPSIS
       amarchiver --version|--create|--extract|--list [--verbose]
		  [--file file]	[filename]...

DESCRIPTION
       Amarchiver manipulates amanda archive file. On creation,	amarchiver
       doesn't recurse into directories. If a filename specifies a directory,
       it will be ignored. If it specifies a character device, amarchiver
       reads the device	and archives the data. If a filename specifies a named
       pipe, amarchiver	reads the named	pipe and archives the data.

       Note that this tool is more limited than	the Amanda archive library,
       and may not be appropriate for some archive files -- particularly those
       which use non-strings in	their filenames.

OPTIONS
       --version
	   print the amarchiver	version

       --create
	   Create an amanda archive. Only the supplied filenames are included.
	   With	one --verbose, lists the filenames. With two, lists the
	   filenames and sizes.

       --list
	   List	the filenames in an amanda archive. No additional filenames
	   are allowed on the command line.

       --extract
	   Extract an amanda archive. If filenames are supplied, only those
	   files are extracted.	Files are created in the current directory,
	   suffixed with a dot ('.') and the attribute ID.

       --verbose
	   Give	more information.

       --file file
	   Create, list	or extract from	the given file instead of
	   stdin/stdout.
