       cfetooldump - dump the contents of a database in XML format


       cfetool dump name [--path-p directory name] [--file-f filename] [--daily-d]
       [--weekly-w] [--yearly-y] [--verbose-v] [--help-h]


       Prints the contents of the specified database in XML format, with comments for human
       readability. This format can be read by cfetool import.

       The -d, -w, and -y options specify which databases to include in the dump, and may be
       combined. If they are all omitted, the default is to only dump the weekly database.


       --path-p directory name
           Names the directory in which the database specified by name can be found.

       --file-f filename
           Names a file to print the XML to. If this option is omitted, the XML will be printed
           to the standard output stream.

           Include the daily pattern database in the dump.

           Include the weekly pattern database in the dump.

           Include the yearly pattern database in the dump.

           Print details of the command's execution to the standard output stream.  When using
           this argument, it is recommended that you also provide the -f argument, to avoid
           sharing the standard output stream.

           Print a short help message and then exit.


         % cfetool dump temperature --path /my/path -f temperature.xml

       Prints the following to the file temperature.xml:

        <!-- cfetool Database Dump -->
