       gwu - Dump a GeneWeb database


       gwu [ options ] < base_file >


       gwu  dumps  the  contents  of  the GeneWeb database to standard output.
       It’s  a  good  way  to  backup  the database in a neutral form, and can
       facilitate upgrades to new software.

       The  primary  documentation  of gwu is in the HTML documentation, which
       you  can find in the documentation directory (/usr/share/doc/geneweb on
       Debian systems).
       Please look there for complete and up-to-date documentation.

       -o <file>           output file name (else stdout)

       -odir <dir>         create  files from original name in directory (else
                           on -o file)

       -mem                save memory space, but slower

                           select ancestors of ... and all  their  descendants
                           (has no effect if -a and/or -d used, option -nsp is

       -aws <1st_name> [num] <surname>
                           select ancestors with siblings

       -s <surname>        select this surname (option usable several times)

       -nsp                no spouses’ parents (for options -s and -d)

       -nn                 no (database) notes

       -c <num>            When a person is born less than <num> years ago, it
                           is  not  exported  unless  it  is  Public.  All the
                           spouses and descendants are also censored.

       -sep 1st_name.num surname
                           To use together with the option  "-odir":  separate
                           this  person  and all his ancestors and descendants
                           sharing  the  same  surname.  All   the   concerned
                           families  are  displayed on standard output instead
                           of their associated files. This option can be  used
                           several times.

       -sep_only_file <file>
                           With  option  "-sep", tells to separate only groups
                           of that file.

       -sep_limit <num>    When using the option "-sep",  groups  of  families
                           can  become  isolated  in the files. Gwu reconnects
                           them to the separated families (i.e.  displays them
                           to  standard output) if the size of these groups is
                           less than  21.  The  present  option  changes  this
