       gwu - Dump a GeneWeb database

       gwu [ options ] < base_file >

       gwu  dumps  the	contents  of  the GeneWeb database to standard output.
       It's  a	good  way  to  backup  the database in a neutral form, and can
       facilitate upgrades to new software.

       The  primary  documentation  of gwu is in the HTML documentation, which
       you  can	find in	the documentation directory (/usr/share/doc/geneweb on
       Debian systems).
       Please look there for complete and up-to-date documentation.

			   spouses and descendants are also censored.

       -sep 1st_name.num surname
			   To use together with	the option  "-odir":  separate
			   this	 person	 and all his ancestors and descendants
			   sharing the same surname. All the  concerned	 fami-
			   lies	 are  displayed	 on standard output instead of
			   their associated files. This	 option	 can  be  used
			   several times.

       -sep_only_file <file>
			   With	 option	 "-sep", tells to separate only	groups
			   of that file.

       -sep_limit <num>	   When	using the option "-sep",  groups  of  families
			   can	become	isolated  in the files.	Gwu reconnects
			   them	to the separated families (i.e.	 displays them
			   to  standard	output)	if the size of these groups is
			   less	than  21.  The	present	 option	 changes  this
