MySQL Backup for lazy sysadmins 0.9

An Open Source Perl script for automating the backup process of MySQL databases.
MySQL Backup for lazy sysadmins (also known as mysqlblasy) is an open source command-line script written in Perl and designed to be used for automatic backups of MySQL databases.

MySQL Backup for lazy sysadmins uses the mysqldump command for dumping MySQL databases to the filessytem, and is capable of rotating backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full.

The project provides a syslog facility, UNIX output (errors to stderr and loglevels), compressed dumps, ability to dump single or multiple databases from a database instance, it’s perfect for cron jobs, features no shell on external commands, and can be executed by unprivileged user.
