NAME
	bregex - Bacula's 'regex' engine

SYNOPSIS
       bregex [options]	-f _data-file_

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the bregex command.
       This  program can be useful for testing regex expressions to be applied
       against a list of filenames.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options is included	below.

       -?     Show version and usage of	program.

       -d nn  Set debug	level to nn.

       -dt    Print timestamp in debug output

       -f <data-file>
	      The data-file is a filename that contains	lines of  data	to  be
	      matched  (or not)	against	one or more patterns. When the program
	      is run, it will prompt you for  a	 regular  expression  pattern,
	      then  apply  it one line at a time against the data in the file.
	      Each line	that matches will be printed preceded by its line num-
	      ber. You will then be prompted again for another pattern.

       -n     Print lines that do not match

       -l     Suppress lines numbers.
