Oh. I didn't check that because I use an already installed Debian package.

That's an argument. The thing I am missing is formerly-known-as-vbackup's ability to backup over the network using ssh or something similar as a transfer layer.


But after looking at the source I think this would be hard to implement in glastree because one would have to change the whole copying part into something stream based...

Right, but vbackup remains unavailable. (Note there is another similar program pdumpfs (http://freshmeat.net/projects/pdumpfs), written in Ruby.)


I wrote glastree for the reason you mention: Perl is portable and popular. And I wrote it for fun, of course.

vbackup reinvented?
Seems to do the same as vbackup (http://freshmeat.net/projects/formerly-known-as-vbackup/) already does. Of course it may be an advantage that glastree is a Perl script, so it should run on every system Perl runs on.

This is a nice workaround to ufs not having .snapshots
For those of you spoiled by having automatic snapshots made for you, and who want/need quick-to-recover backups made without the delays involved of messing with tape, this script is for you.
