SYNOPSIS

empdump [-chmnvx] [-e configfile] [-i dump-file]

DESCRIPTION

empdump exports and imports game state as plain text.

OPTIONS

-c Use complete export format: don’t omit data import doesn’t need.
-e configfile
  Use game configuration in configfile.
-h Help. Print brief usage information and exit.
-i dump-file
  Import from dump-file.
-m Use machine-readable format for export. Import always recognizes both machine-readable and human-readable format.
-n Dry run, don’t actually update game state on import.
-v Print version information and exit.
-x Export game state to standard output.

LIMITATIONS

empdump can’t export player bmaps, power report, telegrams, announcements, message of the day, no-login message and log files. Exported floating-point values may be inexact. Importing an exported game state may not result in identical data files; besides the loss of floating-point precision just mentioned, coordinates are normalized, and characters beyond a string’s terminating zero in a character array are lost.
