Ah stupid me, I don't need the -P and -p ouput for now I can jut use the
- -T xml output .
But if I get it right I see the sql ouput is available for the plugins
but not for the results?
So I can have an .xml file with the results and a .sql file with the
loaded plugins?
To combine them both I have to run a perl script to parse the xml files
in to sql files right?
