Output -i ISO should have ablity to set unique string or datestamp in iso name

Component: mondo Version: 2.0.9
Severity: normal Keywords:


By default, the older versions of Mondo output filenames like 1.iso, 2.iso ... and now I notice that they are mondorescue-1.iso, mondorescue-2.iso, etc. I have mine outputing to an nsf mount on a crontab. I need to manually move these files or they are overwritten in the next cron run. It would be sweet if I could flag the mondo command to insert a date string, for instance, in the output iso name so that I can keep the older iso's without the fear of the over write. eg mondorescue-1-08.18.2006.iso for instance. There should be a default chosen so that you can either just choose to have a unique name or not. Perhaps the -i could take an argument suppied by a script? -i special_run_081806 or a -i %d for default or maybe -i %dt for date time...

Use the -p option and a prefix generated by your script based on the date command e.g.
