This is a simple package for maintaining time-stamped backups.
This is how it works: If a file was last saved on the 19th of July 2002 and the the current buffer's file is "~/test", the command `attic-store' will save a copy in "~/.attic/last/" and in "~/.attic/020719/". If the variable `attic-compress-cmd' is set, the backuped files will be compressed -- "gzip" is used by default. Later you can use the commands `attic-compare-with-last' and `attic-compare-with-version' to generate an ediff between the current version and one of the backuped ones.
Put (require 'attic) (attic-install) into your startup/user init file. Call `attic-store' to make a backup.
The important variables are:
v 1.0.1: attic.el.gz
All elisp files on this site: tellib.tar.gz
