Main feature of this project - convenience. Of course, it is NOT replacement for svn, git or any other control version system.

For intallation just extract files and run ./install.pl so:
$ tar xf autoversion.tar.gz
$ cd autoversion
$ ./install.pl


P.S. You need perl-Archive-Zip package installed.

Hey!

First: This looks very nice. But I have some questions: How does it work? I mean, where and how get the "old" files saved and can I delete some and not all old versions of a file. How is the impact of this software on the disk space?

Best regards!

Hi. When you enables monitoring on some directory, the program creates subdirectory .autobackup and makes zip archives on every changed file.

For example, if you enables monitoring of /home/user/documents then the program creates directory /home/user/documents/.autobackup

Now is impossible to limit used space, but I hope I'll add this in next version.

Added limit. Now it is possible up to 100 versions for each file, after it the script removes oldest version.
No any special configurable options was added.
