The Export Raw exporter will dump your BSDDB or Sqlite3 database into a raw Python representation format for low-level manipulation.

This has been used for byte-wise comparisons to make sure that different import/export functions process the data correctly.

The output file [filenamename].raw can be opened and viewed in a text editor.


Start an export via the menu Family Trees > Export... and on the "Choose the output format" page select the "[ ]Raw Export" - option.
