NAME

       notmuch-dump - Creates a plain-text dump of the tags of each message.

SYNOPSIS

       notmuch dump [ <filename> ] [--] [ <search-term>...]

DESCRIPTION

       Dump tags for messages matching the given search terms.

       Output  is  to  the  given  filename,  if any, or to stdout.  Note that using the filename
       argument is deprecated.

       These tags are the only data in the notmuch database that  can't  be  recreated  from  the
       messages  themselves.   The output of notmuch dump is therefore the only critical thing to
       backup (and much more friendly to incremental backup than the native database files.)

       With no search terms, a dump of all messages in the database will be  generated.   A  "--"
       argument instructs notmuch that the remaining arguments are search terms.

       See notmuch-search-terms(7) for details of the supported syntax for <search-terms>.
