rpdump [ -f ] -l Local_file -r Remote_folder
Rpdump may be used to copy the actual data from remote Alpine configuration files or address books into a local file. It is intended to be used by system administrators. Regular users should normally use the facilities provided within Alpine.
Local_file will normally be a local temporary file. Remote_folder is the IMAP folder being used as a remote Alpine configuration (with the help of Alpine's -P, -p, and -x commands or PINECONF, PINERC, and PINERCEX environment variables) or remote Alpine address book folder. A copy of the data from Remote_folder will be copied to Local_file.
- Force the dump even if the remote folder is in an unrecognized format.
- -l Local_file
- The file on this system that is to be copied to.
- -r Remote_folder

See the Alpine documentation for the syntax of a remote folder name.
