DarGUI provides you with a graphical front-end interface for DAR, allowing for a faster way to perform everyday backup tasks while utilizing DAR.
DarGUI's goal is to complement and enhance the command-line features of DAR as opposed to concealing them. It will also prove invaluable for assisting users in learning how DAR works, permitting them to use it from the command line with more confidence.
DarGUI was designed to provide easy access to the most common and widely-used functions of Dar. But unlike Dar, which by-passes Dar to access the libdar libraries directly, DarGUI compiles a Dar command that is executed in a console. DarGUI doesn't hide the Dar command-line because, for more complicated operations, a working-knowledge of the Dar command line is essential.
