       amraw - Amanda Application open and read data


       Amraw is an Amanda Application API script. It should not be run by
       users directly. It uses dd to backup and restore data.

       Amraw can backup only one directory entry, it can be a single file, a
       raw device, anything that amanda can open and read.

       The diskdevice in the disklist (DLE) must be the filename amraw open
       and read.

       Restore is done in place, an open is done and the data is written to
       it. A file owned by root and permission 0600 is create if the directory
       entry doesn't exist before the restore.

       Only full backup is allowed


       This section lists the properties that control amgtar's functionality.
       See amanda-applications(7) for information on application properties
       and how they are configured.


           Used only for restore command, can be a device name or file, the
           data will be restored to it.


         define application-tool app_amraw {
           plugin "amraw"
       A dumptype using this application might look like:

         define dumptype amraw {
           program "APPLICATION"
           application "app_amraw"
       Note that the program parameter must be set to "APPLICATION" to use the
       application parameter.
