LXer: CPIO command to backup and restore in Linux

Published at LXer:

The cpio command is one of the most commonly used Linux back up tools. The cpio command has two unusual features. Unlike tar , in which the files to back up are typed in as part of the command, cpio reads the files to work with from the standard input (in other words, the screen). This feature means that cpio must be used as part of a multiple command or with a redirection pipe.
