backup-whatsthis - read an id off a tape and display it
backup-whatsthis [--list [n]]
‘backup-whatsthis’ is a simple script to display the TAPEID of the
current tape and optionally list its contents. This script is a bit of
a hack and may not be fully reliable.
--list [n] Print TAPEID then list archive n (default 0). Note that
archives are numbered from zero.
Configuration file for the whole of chiark-backup
‘backup-whatsthis’ is currently hardwired to assume ‘cpio’ type backups
when listing; it could be trivially hardwired to assume ‘zafio’ or with
slightly more effort it could be done properly :->.
