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>.
