SYNOPSIS

arbtt-dump [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

arbtt-dump reads the data samples recorded by arbtt-capture(1) and writes them so the standard output in an ascii based format.

OPTIONS

-h, -?, --help

shows a short summary of the available options, and exists.

-V, --version

shows the version number, and exists.

-f FILE, --logfile FILE

logfile to use instead of ~/.arbtt/capture.log

-t FORMAT, --format FORMAT

dumping format to use, where FORMAT is one of human (the default), show or JSON. Case in-sensitive.

-l NUMBER, --last NUMBER

dump only the last NUMBER of samples.

FILES

~/.arbtt/capture.log

binary file, storing the arbtt data samples

FORMATS

Human

This format is intended for human inspection, but not for further processing. Hence, it may change in new versions of arbtt without notice. Example output:

2013-06-20 14:53:50 (48ms inactive):
    ( ) Navigator:      arbtt-dump - Iceweasel
    ( ) gnome-terminal-server: [email protected]:~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc
    (*) gvim:           arbtt.xml + (~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc) - GVIM2

The line with a star indicates the currently active window.

Show

This is the default serialization format of Haskell's Show type class, one entry per line. This can be useful if the data is to be processed by further Haskell code. Example output, with indentation added manually:

TimeLogEntry
    { tlTime = 2013-06-20 14:53:50.957763 UTC
    , tlRate = 60000
    , tlData = CaptureData
        { cWindows =
            [ (False,"arbtt-dump - Iceweasel","Navigator")
            , (False,"[email protected]:~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc","gnome-terminal-server")
            , (True,"arbtt.xml + (~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc) - GVIM2","gvim")
            ]
        , cLastActivity = 48
        }
    }

JSON

For interoperability, arbtt supports dumping its data to JSON, which can easily be parsed by many different programming languages. Some level of backward-compatibility will be provided, as far as possible. Default output, again with indentation and spacing added manually:

[ ...,
  { "windows": [
      { "program": "arbtt-dump - Iceweasel",
        "title": "Navigator",
        "active": false},
      { "program": "[email protected]:~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc",
        "title":" gnome-terminal-server",
        "active": false},
      { "program": "arbtt.xml + (~/projekte/programming/arbtt/doc) - GVIM2",
        "title": "gvim",
        "active":true
      }],
    "inactive": 48,
    "date": "2013-06-20T14:53:50.957Z",
    "rate": 60000},
  ...
]
