I need to export the metabase on a server to a text file FROM A SCRIPT. In other words, I want to be able to run a task nightly that makes a backup of my entire metabase. I DON'T want a binary backup however, as I have often had problems restoring binary backups of the metabase if it's not being restored to the same machine that it was exported from.
MetaEdit 2.x allows EXACTLY what I'm looking for - i.e. it exports all of the data in the metabase to a text file and also has the ability to then restore settings from that text file. However - I need this functionality froma command line (rather than a GUI).
Is this possible? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
