Hi List

I would like to name the log file in this format <filename>-<date>.log, 
so I use

log file = /var/log/backup-`date +%e/%d/%y`.log

but this does not work. Only fixed filenames work.

Is filename expansion allowed in the log file option. The other way I 
can do it is to use log file and the post-xfer exec to rename the file 
after transfer.
