About backint -i in_file contents
This appendix explains how to create a backint input file. You specify the name of this input file as the argument to the backint command's -i in_file option. The input file consists of one or more directive lines that specify how to perform a backup, restore, or inquiry.
The input file format differs depending on the function you want backint to initiate and on the underlying database.
Table: Directives in the in_file lists the directives that you can include in
