NAME
       nidump - extract text or flat-file-format data from NetInfo

SYNOPSIS
       nidump [ -t ] { -r directory | format } domain

DESCRIPTION
       nidump  reads the specified NetInfo domain and dumps a portion of its contents to standard
       output.	When a flat-file administration file format is specified, nidump provides  output
       using  the  syntax  of  the  corresponding  flat  file.	The allowed values for format are
       aliases, bootparams, bootptab, exports, fstab, group, hosts, networks,  passwd,	printcap,
       protocols, rpc, and services.

       If  the	-r option is used, the first argument is interpreted as a NetInfo directory path,
       and its contents are dumped in a generic NetInfo format.

OPTIONS
       -t     Interpret the domain as a tagged domain.	For example, "trotter/network" refers  to
	      the database tagged "network" on the machine "trotter".  The machine name can be an
	      actual name or an IP address.

       -r     Dump the specified directory in "raw" format.  Directories are delimited	by  curly
	      braces,  and  properties	within	a  directory  are  listed in the form "property =
	      value;".	Parentheses introduce a comma-separated list of items. The special  prop-
	      erty  name  CHILDREN  is	used  to hold a directory's children, if any are present.
	      Spacing and line breaks are significant only within double  quotes,  which  may  be
	      used to protect any names that might contain metacharacters.

EXAMPLES
       "nidump hosts ." dumps a hosts file from the local NetInfo domain.

       "nidump -r /locations /" dumps the /locations directory of the root domain.

       "nidump	-t -r /name=users/uid=530 trotter/network" dumps the directory for the user whose
       UID is 530.
