Description:

Perl extension for creating backup file copies. Three backup naming schemes are supported: simple backup creates backup file name by appending single tilde character to the original file name, numbered backup creates backup name by suffixing the original file name with .~N~, where N is a decimal number. Finally, automatic backup selects numbered scheme if at least one numbered backup file already exists and falls back to the simple backup otherwise.
