Hi,

Quick question: Can pre-backup-plugin and post-backup-plugin just be shell scripts and not the perl template you guys specify? I have scripts I wrote a while ago that prevent new records from being added to my table externally from MySQL and would like to run them before the backup begins...

Thanks,
Ben

Yes they can be in any scripting language you desire
