Command Line Options: Control Options

Modes tell BRU what you want to do; control options tell BRU how you want it done. Control options, as the name implies are optional. If you do not provide them, system defaults are used. Either “reasonable” defaults are used or default values are taken from the /etc/brutab file, which you will have customized for your system. (Chapter 13, “Setting Device Parameters: The brutab File,” shows you how to set up a brutab file.) Control options that are commonly included in the /etc/brutab file are the device on which to create the archive and the size of the archive media.
