       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.


       -help               command-line help

       -o <file>           output file name (else stdout)

       -odir <dir>         create files from original name in directory (else on -o file)

       -mem                save memory space, but slower

       -a <1st_name> [num] <surname>
                           select ancestors of ...

       -d <1st_name> [num] <surname>
                           select descendants of ...

       -ad <1st_name> [num] <surname>
                           select ancestors of ... and all their descendants (has no effect if -a
                           and/or -d used, option -nsp is forced).

       -aws <1st_name> [num] <surname>
                           select ancestors with siblings

       -s <surname>        select this surname (option usable several times)

       -nsp                no spouses' parents (for options -s and -d)

       -nn                 no (database) notes

       -c <num>            When a person is born less than <num> years ago, it  is  not  exported
                           unless  it  is  Public.  All  the  spouses  and  descendants  are also

       -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 families 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 limit.
