NAME

       kdb-export - Export keys from the key database

SYNOPSIS

       kdb export <source> [<format>]

DESCRIPTION

       This command allows a user to export keys from the key database.
       Keys are exported to stdout in whichever format is specified.
       The   default   format   is  dump  but  can  be  changed  by  editing  the  value  of  the
       sw/kdb/current/format key.
       This command can also be used to view full key(s) including their values.

USAGE

       Where source is the path of the key(s) you want to export.
       Additionally, the user can specify a format to use by passing it as  the  option  argument
       format.
       The  format  attribute relies on Elektra´s plugin system to export the keys in the desired
       format. The user can view all  plugins  available  for  use  by  running  the  kdb-list(1)
       command. To learn about any plugin, the user can simply use the kdb-info(1) command.
