We need to use a utility from Pervasive SQL to put data files into continuous operations mode for backup purposes. The following works to put "file" into continous mode, however, the command does not support wildcards.
butil -startbu C:\data\files\file
Their utility does not support wildcards. We need to put any file ending with EXA into continuous mode, and "butil -startbu C:\data\files\*EXA" will return a syntax error.
The butil utility supports using a text file as a list, so that might help up work around this limitation. The butil only properly supports absolute paths, not relative. Initially my idea was to run a "dir *EXA /B > temp.txt" and use that file as a list, however it does not output absolute path names.
Would be best way to do this be with a batch file or a vb script? I am not too familiar with VB scripts.
The command syntax is as follows:
BUTIL -STARTBU <sourceFile | @listFile> [/UID<name> </PWD<word>> [/DB<name>]]
