Unattended Informix database backups?

 Unattended Informix database backups?
I am relatively new to Informix, and am wondering if it is possible to do
non-interactive backups of an Informix database?  I can do this for my normal
backups, via cron, and I want to be able to do the same for backing up a
database.

Depending on which version of Informix you are using, your best bet would
be to use DBEXPORT.  This will create a schema for rebuilding your database as
well as unloading all of your tables into delimted ASCII.  It also has the
advantage of being able to write directly to tape.
