pbackup

backup unix file permissions


DESCRIPTION
pbackup is a small utility for backing up and restoring file 
permissions on GNU/Linux and compatible UNIX based systems.

pbackup enables you to store  the current access permissions
from any part of the file system to a local file.  This file
can later be  used to restore modified access permission  if
needed.

(You never know when someone  will execute  `chmod -R 777 .`
without realizing that they are  standing on the root level)

USAGE
usage: pbackup <-S|-R|-C> [options] [file(s)]

OPTIONS
  -S                    generate backup data from file(s), dump to stdout
  -R                    restore permissions from backup through stdin
  -C                    check current file permissions against backup

  -r                    be recursive (save mode only)
  -v                    be verbose (restore mode only)
  -m <num>              max open file descriptors when being recursive (default is 64)
  -V                    print version and exit

EXAMPLES
  create backup data:          pbackup -S -r / > permbackup.db
  check permission integrity:  pbackup -C < permbackup.db
  restore from backup:         pbackup -R < permbackup.db
