gvfs-save reads from the standard input and saves the data to the given location.

This is similar to just redirecting output to a file using traditional shell syntax, but gvfs-save allows using gvfs locations instead of local files: for example you can use something like smb://server/resource/file.txt as location.


The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Prints a short help text and exits.

-b, --backup

If the destination file already exists, save a backup.

-c, --create

Only create the destination file if it does not exist yet.

-a, --append

Append to the end of the destination file, if it already exists.

-p, --private

When creating a new file, restrict access to the current user only.

-v, --print-etag

Print the new etag at the end.

exit status

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
