Do you think that makedumpfile should create dumpfile from STDIN without any option like the following? # makedumpfile dumpfile < dumpfile.tmp I want to add the option of representing "create dumpfile from STDIN" clearly. I think the following commandline. * makedumpfile outputs a dump data of "flattening format (intermediate)" to STDOUT. # makedumpfile [-O | --to-stdout] /proc/vmcore * makedumpfile creates a normal dumpfile from STDIN of "flattening format". # makedumpfile [-I | --from-stdin] dumpfile If creating a dumpfile from STDIN, makedumpfile of a remote host can create a normal dumpfile directly without intermediate file. # makedumpfile -O -cd31 -x vmlinux /proc/vmcore | ssh user at remote "makedumpfile -I dumpfile" Thanks Ken'ichi Ohmichi
