bup-drecurse — recursively list files in your filesystem
bup drecurse [-x] [-q] [--exclude path] [--exclude-from filename] [--exclude-rx pattern] [--exclude-rx-from filename] [--profile] <path>
bup drecurse traverses files in the filesystem in a way similar to find(1). In most cases, you should use find(1) instead.
This program is useful mainly for testing the file traversal algorithm used in bup-index(1).
Note that filenames are returned in reverse alphabetical order, as in bup-index(1). This is important because you can't generate the hash of a parent directory until you have generated the hashes of all its children. When listing files in reverse order, the parent directory will come after its children, making this easy.
- -x, --xdev, --one-file-system
don't cross filesystem boundaries -- though as with tar and rsync, the mount points themselves will still be reported.
- -q, --quiet
don't print filenames as they are encountered. Useful when testing performance of the traversal algorithms.
exclude path from the backup (may be repeated).
read --exclude paths from filename, one path per-line (may be repeated). Ignore completely empty lines.
exclude any path matching pattern. See bup-index(1) for details, but note that unlike index, drecurse will produce relative paths if the drecurse target is a relative path. (may be repeated).
read --exclude-rx patterns from filename, one pattern per-line (may be repeated). Ignore completely empty lines.
print profiling information upon completion. Useful when testing performance of the traversal algorithms.
