       rpdump - alpine remote data utility

       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.

       -f                  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    A remote folder name to be copied from.  See the
                           Alpine documentation for the syntax of a remote
                           folder name.  One example is

       Exit status is zero if all goes well, -1 otherwise.
