59The <CODE>dump</CODE> command provides a way for the user to spit out
60state information about the interpreter in a Tcl readable (and human
61readable) form.  It takes the general form:
62
63<BLOCKQUOTE>
64<code>dump</code> <b>method</b> <i>?-nocomplain? ?-filter pattern? ?--?
65pattern ?pattern ...?</i>
66</BLOCKQUOTE>
67
68The patterns represent glob-style patterns (as in <code>string match pattern
69$str</code>).  <i>-nocomplain</i> will prevent <code>dump</code> from
70throwing an error if no items matched the pattern.  <i>-filter</i> is
71interpreted as appropriate for the method.  The various methods are:
72
73<DL>
74
75<DT> <CODE>dump <b>command</b></CODE> <i>args</i>
76<DD> Outputs one or more commands.
77
78<DT> <CODE>dump <b>procedure</b></CODE> <i>args</i>
79<DD> Outputs one or more procs in sourceable form.
80
81<DT> <CODE>dump <b>variable</b></CODE> <i>args</i>
82<DD> Outputs the values of variables in sourceable form.  Recognizes nested
83arrays.  The <i>-filter</i> pattern is used as to filter array element
84names and is interepreted as a glob pattern (defaults to {*}).
85It is passed down for nested arrays.
86
87<DT> <CODE>dump <b>widget</b></CODE> <i>args</i>
88<DD> Outputs one or more widgets by giving their configuration options.
89The <i>-filter</i> pattern is used as to filter the config options and
90is interpreted as a case insensitive regexp pattern (defaults to {.*})
