NAME

bregex - Bareos’s ’regex’ engine

SYNOPSIS

bregex [options] -f <data-file>

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the bregex command.
This program can be useful for testing regex expressions to be applied against a list of filenames.

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below.
-? Show version and usage of program.
-d nn Set debug level to nn.

-f <data-file>
The data-file is a filename that contains lines of data to be matched (or not) against one or more patterns. When the program is run, it will prompt you for a regular expression pattern, then apply it one line at a time against the data in the file. Each line that matches will be printed preceded by its line number. You will then be prompted again for another pattern.
-n Print lines that do not match
-l Suppress lines numbers.
