Hi, I've noticed that /sbin/restore no longer prints an asterisk next to files/directories marked for extraction. The man page still says the asterisk will be printed, but 7.1-RELEASE and a recent build of 7-STABLE both lack it:
# dump L0f - / | restore if - DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Tue Jan 27 23:48:40 2009 DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch DUMP: Dumping snapshot of /dev/ad4s1a (/) to standard output DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files] DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories] DUMP: estimated 833971 tape blocks.

There was still an asterisk printed in 7.0-RELEASE. Was this removal accidental or intentional? If the latter, why? Just curious. (Apologies if this has been discussed with any frequency anywhere, but various web searches, including http://www.freebsd.org/search/search.html, just get me hits related to open-source PBX software.) thanks, Jeff _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
