     smuxi-message-buffer — converts and dumps Smuxi chat history


     smuxi-message-buffer [-dh] convert [--source-format=format] [--destination-format=format]
                          source-file destination-file
     smuxi-message-buffer [-dh] cat [--format=format] source-file


     smuxi-message-buffer is a tool that manages the databases that Smuxi holds chat histories
     in. Currently, it can convert and dump databases.

     Similar to commands like git(1) , smuxi-message-buffer takes a command as the first
     parameter. These commands can be cat (dumps a JSON representation of the database to
     standard output) or convert. (changes the database from one format to another) Note that the
     destination file can be set to "-" or empty in the case of convert, in which case it will
     export to stdout.

     The following options can be used. Some options will depend on what command you're using.

     -d, --debug
             Turn on debugging. Debug logs are outputted on the console.

     -h, --help
             Show the arguments Smuxi takes.


             Manually specify a source format. Options include auto (figured out via filename),
             db4o, and sqlite.

             Manually specify a source destination, if converting. Options include auto (figured
             out via filename), db4o, and sqlite.
