       plpbackup  [-h]  [-v]  [-q]  [-f]  [-b [archive-name]] [-r
       archive-name] [-F] [-V]  [-p  [host:]port]  [long-options]
       [drive:] [drive:]...


       plpbackup  provides  a  facility for backup and restore of
       Psion drives on your PC. It also can format  Psion  drives
       before performing a restore.


       -h, --help
              Display a short help text and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Increase verbosity

       -q, --quiet
              Decrease verbosity

       -f, --full
              Perform  a  full backup of the specified drives. If
              this option is missing, an  incremental  backup  is
              done   based   on  the  archive  bit  in  the  file
              attributes on the Psion. Archive bits of  backed-up
              files are cleared after any successful backup oper­

       -b, --backup[=archive-name]
              Select backup mode. This mode and restore mode  are
              mutually  exclusive.   If  archive-name is missing,
              plpbackup automatically  selects  an  archive  name
              using     the    following    scheme:    $HOME/plp­
              backup/PsionUID/T-YYYY-MM-DD-hh-mm-ss.tar.gz      ,

                     is  the  Psion's  unique machine id. If con­
                     nected to a Series 3 which does not  provide
                     a  machine  id,  during first backup of that
                     Psion an artificial machine id is calculated
                     from the contents of the Psion's owner-info.
                     This id  is  then  written  on  the  Psion's
                     default  drive  M: into the file SYS$PT.CFG.
                     and used on subsequent operations.

              T      is a single character F  or  I  representing
                     full or incremental respectively.

              YYYY   is the current year.
              backup  asks  interactively, if you want to restore
              individual files  or  the  whole  contents  of  the
              archive.  If you select individual files, plpbackup
              extracts a listing of the archive's contents into a
              temporary file and starts an editor with this file.
              Using the editor, you then can mark  the  files  to
              restore. The default editor to be used can be spec­
              ified in the environment variable EDITOR.  If  this
              environment  variable is not available, the builtin
              default vi is used.

       -F, --format
              Format specified drives. This option  can  be  com­
              bined with restore mode.  USE WITH EXTREME CARE!

       -V, --version
              Display the version and exit

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify  the  host and port to connect to (e.g. The
              port where ncpd is listening on) - by  default  the
              host  is  and  the  port is looked up in
              /etc/services. If it is not found there, a  builtin
              value of 7501 is used.

       drive: The  Psion's  drive  character  to  be selected for
              backup or restore. Multiple drive characters can be
              specified. In backup mode, this option can be omit­
              ted to have plpbackup scan for all available drives
              on the Psion.
