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.
$NEMO/adm root directory for all local import/export activity $NEMO/adm/import imported tar files from other sites $NEMO/adm/export exported tar files to other sites export.csh export script, often called by Nightly import.csh import script, normally called manually Nightly script run by cron crontab example crontab file to run Nightly Netrc file with list of remote sites for export Last_ntar time check file, needed by export
