DESCRIPTION

       The bp command starts a menu interface that lets users  archive,  back  up,  and
       restore  files,  directories,  or raw partitions from their client workstations.
       This interface can be run from any character-based terminal (or terminal  emula-
       tion window) for which the user has a termcap or terminfo definition.

       The  NetBackup  User's  Guide  for  UNIX and the bp online help provide detailed
       operating instructions.
