a program that can upload text files, binary files or entire
directory structures to a pastebin, such as
a program that be used to retrieve content uploaded to a
pastebin by pbput.
operates exactly like pbput, except it encrypts the
data. An optional GPG_USER argument is allowed, which will
sign and encrypt the data to the target user in one’s
keyring (which could be oneself!). Otherwise, the user is
prompted for a symmetric passphrase for encrypting the
content with gpg(1) before uploading. pbget
will automatically prompt the receiving user for the
and pbputs can take its input either on STDIN, or as
a FILENAME argument.
- If STDIN is used, then the receiving user’s
pbget will simply paste the input on STDOUT.
- If a FILENAME or DIRECTORY is passed as an argument, then
it is first archived using tar(1) to preserve the
file and directory attributes
takes a URL as its first, mandatory argument. Optionally, it
takes a DIRECTORY as a second parameter. If the incoming
data is in fact a file or file structure in a tar(1)
archive, then that data will be extracted in the specified
DIRECTORY. If no DIRECTORY is specified, then a temporary
directory is created using mktemp(1).
In any case the
uploaded/downloaded data is optionally tar(1)
archived, always lzma(1) compressed, optionally
gpg(1) encrypted, and always base64(1)
encoded. http://pastebin.com is used by default.
