README.rst is a script that automatically logs on to a phpMyAdmin site, gets its export page, then downloads a bzip2-compressed database dump of a specific database by submitting the form.

This is useful in situations where the only access to the database is via a phpMyAdmin, and there are no other ways to get a SQL dump for backup purposes, for example at low-cost webhosting companies.

Requirements: Python and its mechanize package (available as python-mechanize on Debian and Ubuntu).

Run ./ --help for usage.
