    Haven't seen any, anyway, you could try utilizing normal function on reading the data, and then logging it into a file from your own code.

    If you have an AllFiles devcert, then you can get the commdb file off the handset, put it on the emulator c drive and use ceddump to have a look at it.

    Which file?

    Fire up the emulator, change something in the commdb, then look for the most recently changed files in the emulator filesystem (probably using a windoze explorer search). A quick glance with a hex editor will confirm which one it is.

    You probably aren't allowed to do this, so forget you read anything.

    Using the TRK hacks I was able to get AllFiles capability and the necessary files. But if I put them to emulator folders - emulators' OS owerwrites them with default ones. It happens both when the when I try to launch the emulator and when I try to use ceddump.

    If you are already that big hacker, you could simply open the database file with the two possible approaches (RDbNamedDatabase and RDbStoreDatabase+CPermanentFileStore), one of them will probably work (in fact CommDb.h contains which one), and use the RDbDatabase+RDbView methods to get info about tables, column names, column types, and the data itself after all.
