dar_slave(1)                                                      dar_slave(1)


       dar_slave - disk archive slave for remote access to a dar archive


       dar_slave [options] [<path>/]source

       dar_slave -h

       dar_slave -V


       dar_slave  reads  an  archive  and  listens  for dar orders on standard
       input, sending asked parts of the archive on standard output.

       Source is the basename of the archive to read.  By  default,  dar_slave
       uses standard input and output to communicate with a dar process, which
       may be running on the local host or on a remote host. It is possible to
       change  the behavior of dar_slave to use named pipe instead of standard
       input and output


       -h                  Displays help usage.

       -V                  Displays version information.

       -i <filename>       reads the orders from the  named  file  instead  of
                           standard  input. In most cases the filename will be
                           a named pipe.

       -o <filename>       sends the data to the named file <filename> instead
                           of standard output. In most cases the filename will
                           be a named pipe.

       -E <string>         string is a command to be launched between  slices.
                           See dar(1) man page (same option) for more informa-

       -Q                  Do not display  any  message  on  stderr  when  not
                           launched from a terminal (for example when launched
                           from an at job or crontab). Remains that any  ques-
                           tion  to  the  user  will be assumed a 'no' answer,
                           which most of the time will abort the program.

       -9 <num>            Defines the minimum number of digits to use for ar-
                           chive slice numbers. See the same option in dar man
                           page for more details.


       dar_slaves exists with the same codes as dar does, see dar(1) man page.


       Any  signal sent to dar_slave will abort the program immediately, there
       is no way to have a proper termination before the end of the process
