export - export new files as a tar file to remote sites (deprecated)


export.csh root-dir [user(s)...]


This script is now deprecated. We are now using CVS for source code control.

export is currently installed as a shell script export.csh. It’s first parameter is the root directory name of the package one wants to export from. It creates a list of files newer than the timestamp of a checkfile, which are combined into a tar image. This tar image is copied to a number of sites, listed in the Netrc file, using ftp(1) .

Although the original copies of all import/export files live in $NEMO/src/nemo/adm, the working copies are placed in $NEMO/adm (make adm). Execution of import and export scripts must be from this working directory, as they are not placed in general accessible bin directories in a users search path.

The name of the tarfile is of the format mmdddyy.hostname. After a tarfile has been imported by the import script, a dash (-) is appended to the filename.


In $NEMO/src/nemo/adm: original copies, in $NEMO/adm: working copies.
