       gspl-spuconv - dump out GNUspool user permissions to file


       gspl-spuconv [ -D dir ] [ -v n ] [ -e n ] [ -s ] [ -f ] user file outfile


       gspl-spuconv considers a GNUspool spool directory, by default the current directory, takes
       the user file, which is usually spufile or spufile0.0, and generates a shell script file
       outfile, which if executed, would recreate the GNUspool users with the same options.


       -D directory
               specifies the source directory for the users and user file. It can be specified as
               $SPOOLDIR or "${SPOOLDIR-/var/spool/gnuspool}" etc and the environment and/or
               gnuspool.conf will be interrogated to interpolate the value of the environment
               variable given.

               If you use this, don't forget to put single quotes around it thus:

                gspl-spuconv -D '${SPOOLDIR-/var/spool/gnuspool}' ...

               otherwise the shell will try to interpret the $ construct and not gspl-spuconv.

       -e n    Tolerate n errors of the kinds denoted by the other options before giving up
               trying to convert the file.

       -s      Ignore file size errors in the saved user file (up to the number of total errors
               given by the -e option.

       -f      Ignore format errors (invalid form types etc) in the saved user file.
