CFETOOLDUMP(8) User Contributed Perl Documentation CFETOOLDUMP(8)

NAME

cfetooldump - dump the contents of a database in XML format

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

--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.
--daily-d
Include the daily pattern database in the dump.
--weekly-w
Include the weekly pattern database in the dump.
--yearly-y
Include the yearly pattern database in the dump.
--verbose-v
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.
--help-h
Print a short help message and then exit.

EXAMPLE

  % cfetool dump temperature --path /my/path -f temperature.xml
Prints the following to the file temperature.xml:
 <!-- cfetool Database Dump -->
 <dump>
        <name> temperature </name>
        <age> 1 </age> <!-- steps (0.001 weeks) -->
