NAME

       gdbm_dump - dump a GDBM database to a file

SYNOPSIS

       gdbm_dump [-H FMT] [--format=FMT] DB_FILE [FILE]

       gdbm_dump [-Vh] [--help] [--usage] [--version]

DESCRIPTION

       The gdbm_dump utility creates a dump of the specified gdbm(3) database file.  The name for
       the output dump file is supplied by the second argument (FILE).   If  not  specified,  the
       output goes to the standard error.

       The  created  dump  can  be  given as argument to the gdbm_load(1) utility in order to re-
       create an exact copy of the DB_FILE.

OPTIONS

       -H, --format=FMT
              Select dump format.  The value binary (or  0)  instructs  gdbm_dump  to  produce  a
              binary  dump, compatible with earlier gdbm versions (up to version 1.9).  The value
              ascii (or 1) instructs it to create an ASCII  dump  (this  is  the  default).   The
              latter  is  preferred  because,  apart from the actual data, it also contains meta-
              information which will allow gdbm_load(1) to recreate an exact copy of the file.

       -h, --help
              Print a short usage summary.

       --usage
              Print a list of available options.

       -V, --version
              Print program version
