DCF stands for
Dar Configuration File. See the
-B, --batch <filename> option in man dar.
About the --prune argument:
Apparently, the paths to prune shouldn't be quoted:
# Does not work:
dar <misc options> --prune 'backups/'
dar <misc options> --prune backups/
Sometimes, a dar script will give the following warning:
Arguments read from /usr/local/etc/darrc
No user target found on command line
See the "USER TARGETS" of man dar for a full explanation.
See the "FILES" section of man dar.
As far as we are aware, the syntax of Dar Configuration Files (DCF: see above) does not allow for variables. DCF's only allows to set arguments that one would normally set on the command line.
