       reged - utility to export/import and edit a Windows registry hives


       reged [options] -x<registryhivefile><prefixstring><key><output.reg>

       reged [options] -I<registryhivefile><prefixstring><input.reg>

       reged [options] -e<registryhivefile>


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the reged command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       reged is the an interactive command line utility that can be used  to  export,  import  or
       edit a Microsoft Windows registry hive.


       -h     Show summary of options.

       -x <registryhivefile> <prefixstring> <key> <output.reg>
              Export  parts  of  a  hive  file  to  a  text  registry (.reg)  file.  Prefixstring
              indicates   the   part   of   the   registry   hive   to    dump    (for    example
              HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE).   The   <key>  parameter  defines  the  key  to  dump
              (recursively). You can use \ or \\ to list all the keys in the hive file.

              Only one hive file and one .reg file can be defined.

       -I <registryhivefile> <prefixstring> <input.reg>
              Import the content of the  input.reg  file  into  the  registry  file.   The  value
              <prefixstring> can be any valid prefix, for example is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.

              Only one .reg and one hive file supported at the same time

       -e <registryhive> ...
              Interactive edit one or more registry files.

       -L     Log  all  changed  filenames  to  /tmp/changed. When this option is set the program
              automatically saves the changes in the hive files without prompting the user.

              Be careful when using the -L option as a root user  in  a  multiuser  system.   The
              filename  is fixed and this can be used by malicious users (dropping a symlink with
              the same name) to overwrite system files.

       -C     Automatically save all changes. Do not prompt the user.

       -N     Do not allocate more information, only allow the editing of  existing  values  with
              same size.

       -E     Do not expand the hive file (safe mode).

       -t     Print debug information of allocated blocks.

       -v     Print verbose information and debug messages.
