       gdbm_dump - dump a GDBM database to a file


       gdbm_dump [-H FMT] [--format=FMT] DB_FILE [FILE]

       gdbm_dump [-Vh] [--help] [--usage] [--version]


       The  gdbm_dump utility creates a dump of the specified gdbm(3) database
       file.  The name for the output dump file  is  supplied  by  the  second
       argument  (FILE).   If  not  specified, the output goes to the standard

       The created dump can be given as argument to the  gdbm_load(1)  utility
       in order to re-create an exact copy of the DB_FILE.


       -H, --format=FMT
              Select dump format.  The value binary (or 0) instructs gdbm_dump
              to produce a binary dump, compatible with earlier gdbm  versions
              (up  to  version  1.9).   The value ascii (or 1) instructs it to
              create an ASCII dump (this is the default).  The latter is  pre-
              ferred  because,  apart  from  the actual data, it also contains
              meta-information which will allow gdbm_load(1)  to  recreate  an
              exact copy of the file.

       -h, --help
              Print a short usage summary.

              Print a list of available options.

       -V, --version
              Print program version


       gdbm_load(1), gdbmtool(1), gdbm(3).
