        The file format used by dump(8) is not documented; nor is its
        compatibility with other operating systems or file systems or
        dump implementations discussed.  It should be documented
        precisely enough, or there should at least be a reference to
        documentation precise enough, that one can write programs to
        read and write the format.


        Type `man dump'.  Fail to find said information.


        Yes, please!  Perhaps I shall use the source on some rainy day
        and prepare a patch myself.
