       bup-ls - list the contents of a bup repository


       bup ls [-s][-a] <paths...>


       bup ls  lists  files  and  directories  in  your  bup  repository using the same directory
       hierarchy as they would have with bup-fuse(1).

       The top level directory contains the branch (corresponding to the -n option in  bup save),
       the next level is the date of the backup, and subsequent levels correspond to files in the

       When bup ls is asked to output on a tty, it formats its output in columns so that  it  can
       list  as  much  as possible in as few lines as possible.  However, when bup ls is asked to
       output to something other than a tty (say you pipe the output to another command,  or  you
       redirect  it  to  a  file), it will output one file name per line.  This makes the listing
       easier to parse with external tools.

       Note that bup ls doesn't show hidden files by default and one needs to use the  -a  option
       to  show  them.   Files are hidden when their name begins with a dot.  For example, on the
       topmost level, the special directories named .commit and .tag are hidden directories.

       Once you have identified the file you want using bup ls, you can view its  contents  using
       bup join or git show.


       -s, --hash
              show hash for each file/directory.

       -a, --all
              show hidden files.

       -l     show file sizes.

              print human readable file sizes (i.e.  3.9K, 4.7M)
