The Shell Scripts fullbru and incbru

Two shell scripts, fullbru and incbru, have been included with BRU to help you perform backups. These are normally installed as /bin/fullbru and /bin/incbru. The fullbru script will perform a full backup. It will back up all files on your system. incbru will perform an incremental backup; it will back up only the files that have changed since the last time fullbru was run. The incbru script does most of the work. It was written to be as simple as possible and may not work correctly on your system. Feel free to modify it to suit your needs. See Appendix G, “The Shell Scripts fullbru and incbru” for copies of the scripts and examples of their use.
