sdump - Dump raw ship information




[##:##] Command : sdump <SHIPS> [<fields>]

The sdump command displays all information on some or all of your ships. sdump is a combination of ship, cargo, and sstat. Each ship'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 sdump command <SHIPS> are the ships 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).

An sdump command lists all selected ships headed by:

Sun Feb  9 22:16:37 1997
DUMP SHIPS 855544597

The first line is the date. The second line is the "DUMP SHIPS <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.)
