( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
From Dustin J. Mitchell on the amanda-users maillist:
As was discussed a few months ago, Amanda's going to Perl. That means
that we're building Perl interfaces to the Amanda core, and beginning
to rewrite Amanda applications in Perl.

This will be a part of the next release, which is coming up soon. Of
course, it's a big change, so we need some serious help testing it
out. To that end, we have a tarball available on the community builds

Please download the patch and test it out. Detailed instructions are at

Please let us know about any errors you encounter.

If you're a Perl hacker, please also take a look at

and consider chipping in.

Also, I will be hosting an interactive webinar on January 17.
I will be talking about the technical details of the Perl interface,
as well as ways that you can get involved, and will be taking questions,

See, and please attend!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
