pdump - Dump raw plane information
pdump <PLANES> [<fields>]
The pdump command displays all information on some or all of your planes. pdump is a combination of plane and pstat. Each plane's information is printed on one very long line. Fields are separated by a single space.
This command is designed to be used for input to an empire tool such as "ve".
In the syntax of the pdump command <PLANES> are the planes on which you wish information, [<fields>] are the fields you wish to dump. If no fields are specified, all fields are printed. (see "info Syntax").
A pdump command lists all selected planes headed by:
Sun Feb 9 22:16:37 1997 DUMP PLANES 855544597 <fields>
The first line is the date. The second line is the "DUMP PLANES <timestamp>" where the <timestamp> field is the current timestamp. The third line is the columns which are output.
These columns represent the following fields which are also the selection criteria for the command.
The following may be used as fields. They must be entered EXACTLY as shown here (no partial pattern matching is done.)
- type type of plane
- x x location
- y y location
- wing wing
- eff efficiency
- mob mobility
- tech technology level
- att attack value
- def defense value
- acc accuracy
- react current reaction range
- range maximum range
- load load rating
- fuel amount of fuel used in one flight
- hard hardness
- ship ship number the plane is on
- land land unit number the plane is on
- laun launched into orbit?
- orb orbiting synchronously?
- nuke nuke name (if armed)

A typical usage might be:
[##:##] Command : pdump #5
which would list data for all planes in realm #5.
A pdump lists each of your planes in the specified area. The header line is a list of fields that correspond to the order that pdump prints the plane info.
