Backup Format

The backup format is text file encoded in either ASCII or UCS-2-BE encodings.

This file use ini file syntax, see INI file format.

Examples

If you will backup settings to Gammu text file, it will be possible to edit it. It’s easy: many things in this file will be written double - once in Unicode, once in ASCII. When you will remove Unicode version Gammu will use ASCII on fBrestorefR (and you can easy edit ASCII text) and will convert it according to your OS locale. When will be available Unicode version of text, it will be used instead of ASCII (useful with Unicode phones - it isn’t important, what locale is set in computer and no conversion Unicode -> ASCII and ASCII -> Unicode is done).

You can use any editor with regular expressions function to edit backup text file. Examples of such editors can be vim or TextPad which both do support regular expressions.
