NAME

       md_doc_help_kdb-exportkdb-export(1) -- Export keys from the key database
        - 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.

   OPTIONS
       · -H, --help: Show the man page.

       · -V, --version: Print version info.

       · -E, --without-elektra: Omit the system/elektra directory.

   EXAMPLES
       To view your full key database in Elektra's native dump format: kdb export /

       To backup your full key database in Elektra's native dump format to a file called full-
       backup.ecf: kdb export / > full-backup.ecf

       To view a keyset stored in user/keyset in the XML format: kdb export user/keyset xmltool

       To backup a keyset stored in user/keyset in the ini format to a file called keyset.ini:
