Cross-platform backup program

'simplebackup' is a cross-platform backup program that builds simple backups of directories and files. It reads a configuration file, then it builds a compressed file for each backup directories or file, and places the compressed files into another location. This location could be (for example) a network mapped drive in windows, a nfs mounted drive in unix, another hard disk, a ftp server or a tape device (*nix only). This duplicates your information, doing the so called "backup".
