bdump(1) visualization of biniou data


bdump [Options...] [file]


bdump prints biniou data files in human readable form. For the conversion of hash tags into meaningful names, bdump maintains a dictionary of words, see option -h. New words can be added to this dictionary with -d and -w. The dictionary is saved between invocation, see option -x and -h.

If the file argument is omitted, bdump reads data from standard input.


-d file
load file containing words to add to the dictionary, one per line
-h file
set dictionary file for unhashing. Default is $HOME/.bdump-dict on Unix and $HOMEPATH_bdump-dict on Windows
-w word1,word2,...
add words to the dictionary
neither load nor update the dictionary file (see option -h)
-help | --help
print options and exit
