nidump

nidump

nidump Extracts text or flat file–format data from NetInfo.
nidump [-t] {-r <directory> | <format> } <domain>
								

nidump reads the specified NetInfo domain and dumps a portion of its contents to standard output. When a flat-file administration format is specified, nidump provides output in the syntax of the corresponding flat file. Allowed values for <format> are aliases, bootparams, bootptab, exports, fstab, group, hosts, networks, passwd, printcap, protocols, rpc, and services.
If -r is used, the first argument is interpreted as a NetInfo directory path, and its contents are dumped in a generic NetInfo format.
-t Interprets the domain as a tagged name.
-r Dumps the specified directory in raw format. Directories are delimited in curly braces. Properties within a directory are listed in the form property = value;. Parentheses introduce a comma-separated list of items. The special property name CHILDREN is used to hold a directory's children, if any. Spacing and line breaks are significant only within double quotes, which may be used to protect any names with metacharacters.
