The db_dump utility reads the database file file and writes it to the standard output using a portable flat-text format understood by the db_load utility. The argument file must be a file produced using the Berkeley DB library functions.

The db_dump185 utility is similar to the db_dump utility, except that it reads databases in the format used by Berkeley DB versions 1.85 and 1.86.

  • r Do not display the free-list or pages on the free list. ...
