I'm using RARLABS RAR.exe to archive/backup my server data. I am familiar with using RAR for creating an archive and adding files from a folder, but what about streaming data directly into an archive?
For example, when backing up my MySQL databases I use the mysqldump command that includes a pipe command into a text file. It would be nice to skip the file step and go directly into an archive file using something like the following syntax:
mysqldump -uUserName -pPassword --all-databases > rar.exe newarchivename.rar
Does anyone know if what I have described, or something similar, is even possible?
