I already explained that I have read the man page as suggested. If you
suggest that one should become an electronics engineer if the TV manual
is incomplete that is hardly the best suggestion :)

Which contradicts the whole suggestion to backup everything.

Sure, this sanitizing is a common sense. But although file names can
imply they cannot reveal the complete role of the file or its time span
in the functionality of a program. Also as I mentioned there are
leftovers which are not named "temp".

Thanks - for all the times. Unfortunately the question still remains
and it seems that only a developer who knows the intricacies of the
program can shed light on the subject. There is hardly any need to
accuse the questioner for being too interested just because others
also don't have the info he is asking for. Surely there are people
who have it, so my question is to whoever this may apply. Peace.
