GDBM_DUMP(1)		      GDBM User	Reference		  GDBM_DUMP(1)

NAME
       gdbm_dump - dump	a GDBM database	to a file

SYNOPSIS
       gdbm_dump [-H FMT] [--format=FMT] DB_FILE [FILE]

       gdbm_dump [-Vh] [--help]	[--usage] [--version]

DESCRIPTION
       The  gdbm_dump utility creates a	dump of	the specified gdbm(3) database
       file.  The name for the output dump file	 is  supplied  by  the	second
       argument	 (FILE).   If  not  specified, the output goes to the standard
       error.

       The created dump	can be given as	argument to the	 gdbm_load(1)  utility
       in order	to re-create an	exact copy of the DB_FILE.

OPTIONS
       -H, --format=FMT
	      Select dump format.  The value binary (or	0) instructs gdbm_dump
	      to produce a binary dump,	compatible with	earlier	gdbm  versions
	      (up  to  version	1.9).	The value ascii	(or 1) instructs it to
	      create an	ASCII dump (this is the	default).  The latter is  pre-
	      ferred  because,	apart  from  the actual	data, it also contains
	      meta-information which will allow	gdbm_load(1)  to  recreate  an
	      exact copy of the	file.

       -h, --help
	      Print a short usage summary.

       --usage
	      Print a list of available	options.

       -V, --version
	      Print program version
