bup-ftp - ftp-like client for navigating bup repositories
bup ftp is a command-line tool for navigating bup repositories. It has commands similar to the Unix ftp(1) command. The file hierarchy is the same as that shown by bup-fuse(1) and bup-ls(1). Note: if your system has the python-readline library installed, you can use the <tab> key to complete filenames while navigating your backup data. This will save you a lot of typing.
The following commands are available inside bup ftp: ls [-s] [-a] [path] print the contents of a directory. If no path argument is given, the current directory's contents are listed. If -a is given, also include hidden files (files which start with a . character). If -s is given, each file is displayed with its hash from the bup archive to its left. cd dirname change to a different working directory pwd print the path of the current working directory cat filenames... print the contents of one or more files to stdout get filename localname download the contents of filename and save it to disk as localname. If localname is omitted, uses filename as the local name. mget filenames... download the contents of the given filenames and stores them to disk under the same names. The filenames may contain Unix filename globs (*, ?, etc.) help print a list of available commands quit exit the bup ftp client
