NAME

       dar_slave - disk archive slave for remote access to a dar archive

SYNOPSIS

       dar_slave [options] [<path>/]source

       dar_slave -h

       dar_slave -V

DESCRIPTION

       dar_slave  reads  an  archive  and listens for dar orders on standard input, sending asked
       parts of the archive on standard output.

       Source is the basename of the archive to read. By default, dar_slave uses  standard  input
       and output to communicate with a dar process, which may be running on the local host or on
       a remote host. It is possible to change the  behavior  of  dar_slave  to  use  named  pipe
       instead of standard input and output

OPTIONS

       -h                  Displays help usage.

       -V                  Displays version information.

       -i <filename>       reads  the  orders  from  the named file instead of standard input. In
                           most cases the filename will be a named pipe.

       -o <filename>       sends the data to  the  named  file  <filename>  instead  of  standard
                           output. In most cases the filename will be a named pipe.

       -E <string>         string is a command to be launched between slices. See dar(1) man page
                           (same option) for more information.

       -Q                  Do not display any message on stderr when not launched from a terminal
                           (for  example  when  launched from an at job or crontab). Remains that
                           any question to the user will be assumed a 'no' answer, which most  of
                           the time will abort the program.

       -9 <num>            Defines the minimum number of digits to use for archive slice numbers.
                           See the same option in dar man page for more details.

EXIT CODES

       dar_slaves exists with the same codes as dar does, see dar(1) man page.

SIGNALS

       Any signal sent to dar_slave will abort the program immediately, there is no way to have a
       proper termination before the end of the process
