pbput is a program that can upload text files, binary files or entire
directory structures to a pastebin, such as pastebin.com.
pbget is a program that be used to retrieve content uploaded to a
pastebin by pbput.
pbputs 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 encrypt-
ing the content with gpg(1) before uploading. pbget will automatically
prompt the receiving user for the pre-shared passphrase.
pbput and pbputs can take its input either on STDIN, or as a FILENAME
- 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
pbget 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.
