By default IperBackup will fetch the permissions (Ipernity-wise) for each
document and will store it in the filename. The permission string will be
stored in the beginning of the filename. The result will look something
-like this: perm_public-<original filename>. You can disable this behaviour
-by using this switch:
+like this:
+ perm_public-<original filename> for public files,
+ perm_private-<original filename> for only private,
+ perm_familyonly-<original filename> for private + family,
+ perm_friendonly-<original filename> for private + friends,
+ perm_familyandfriend-<original filename> for private + family + friends.
+You can disable this behaviour by using this switch:
-p or --nopermission
+Thus the file will be saved with their original filename.
That's all. Have fun using it!
