NAME

       cfetool dump - dump the contents of a database in XML format

SYNOPSIS

       cfetool dump name [--path-p directory name] [--file-f filename]
       [--daily-d] [--weekly-w] [--yearly-y] [--verbose-v] [--help-h]

DESCRIPTION

       Prints the contents of the specified database in XML format, with
       comments for human readability. This format can be read by cfetool
       import.

       The -d, -w, and -y options specify which databases to include in the
       dump, and may be combined. If they are all ommitted, the default is to
       only dump the weekly database.

OPTIONS

       --path-p directory name
           Names the directory in which the database specified by name can be
           found.

       --file-f filename
           Names a file to print the XML to. If this option is omitted, the
           XML will be printed to the standard output stream.

       --daily-d
           Include the daily pattern database in the dump.

       --weekly-w
           Include the weekly pattern database in the dump.

       --yearly-y
           Include the yearly pattern database in the dump.

       --verbose-v
           Print details of the command’s execution to the standard output
           stream.  When using this argument, it is recommended that you also
           provide the -f argument, to avoid sharing the standard output
           stream.

       --help-h
           Print a short help message and then exit.

EXAMPLE

         % cfetool dump temperature --path /my/path -f temperature.xml

       Prints the following to the file temperature.xml:

        <!-- cfetool Database Dump -->
        <dump>

               <name> temperature </name>

               <age> 1 </age> <!-- steps (0.001 weeks) -->

               <step> 10 </step> <!-- minutes -->

               <!-- consecutive updates -->
               <iterations> 1 </iterations>

               <!-- last update at Tue Aug 31 10:32:05 2004 -->
               <timestamp> 1093973525 </timestamp>

               <!-- current weighted average -->
               <expect> 7.105000 </expect>

               <!-- current variance -->
               <var> 38.280217 </var>

        <!-- data entries -->
               <entry> <timekey> Tue:Hr10:Min30_40 </timekey>
                       <expect> 10.150000 </expect>
                       <var> 13.245750 </var>
               </entry>

        </dump>
