NAME

       backup-whatsthis - read an id off a tape and display it

SYNOPSIS

       backup-whatsthis [--list [n]]

DESCRIPTION

       `backup-whatsthis'  is  a  simple  script  to  display  the TAPEID of the current tape and
       optionally list its contents.  This script is a bit  of  a  hack  and  may  not  be  fully
       reliable.

OPTIONS

       --list [n]  Print  TAPEID then list archive n (default 0). Note that archives are numbered
              from zero.

FILES

       /etc/chiark-backup/settings.pl
              Configuration file for the whole of chiark-backup

BUGS

       `backup-whatsthis' is currently hardwired to assume `cpio' type backups when  listing;  it
       could  be  trivially  hardwired to assume `zafio' or with slightly more effort it could be
       done properly :->.
