       barrybackup - Barry Project's backup program for the BlackBerry handheld


       barrybackup [-?][-d]


       barrybackup  is  a  GUI  application  for  backing  up  and  restoring Blackberry handheld

       The application allows for filtering of databases for both backup and restore, so not  all
       databases need to be backed up at once, nor all restored.

       Backups  and configuration files are stored by default in the user's home directory, under
       ~/.barry/backup/PIN.  This destination can be changed in the config dialogs, per device.

       The backup files are compressed tarballs containing specially named files for each  record
       of the databases.


       -d     --debug-output Enables low level protocol debug output written to stdout/stderr.

              Specify which X display to use.

       -?     --help Show summary of options.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.


       Backups  are  stored in tar format, compressed with gzip.  Backup files are named with the
       following pattern:


       The tag name is optional and is used to name a particular backup.

       Each record is appended to the tar file using the following pattern for the filename:

            DBname/RecordID RecordTypeID

       That is, the database name is used as the directory name, and the  filename  contains  the
       record ID and record type ID separated by a space.

       Database names can contain spaces.

       Record  IDs  are  generally  unique, but not all Blackberry devices mandate this, so it is
       possible, but rare, to have two records in the tar file with the same filename.   This  is
       ok.   The  only problem you'd see is if you expanded such a tar file to a filesystem.  The
       restore process just reads in the filename sequentially and writes them to the device,  so
       duplicate record IDs are not a problem.
