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 \s-1XML\s0 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 \s-1XML\s0 to. If this option is omitted, the \s-1XML\s0 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.
