=>If I use -pipe (flexbackup -dir foo -pipe | split -b ... -
=>/bar/SomePrefix_) how do I then extract files using flexbackup?
=>
=>This does not work:
=>cat /bar/SomePrefix_* | flexbackup -extract -onefile SomeFile -pipe

I didn't know about the -pipe option and I had my hopes up that this would 
fix my problems, but -pipe is incompatible with -set (which I use).

I reported back a long time ago about how on occasion my flexbackup 
cronjob would make its backup files and then hang. Here's the relevant 
process info I get:

Does anyone have a clue what can be done or is this really just a dead 
unsupported utility?
