Sorry, but no.

I don't know Perl and I am not actually using the script.  I was just 
looking for info on how to do backups correctly in my environment.

I am using Bacula for backups, so the Bacula fileset determines what 
goes in the backup and I have a Python script that does the tdbbackup.

Happy to share the Python script if any one wants it, but it is hard 
coded with the specifics of my environment (Centos 7/Sernet 
packages/Bacula) and just runs the tdbbackup on all the ldb/tdb files 
and does nothing else.
