Regedit file format

I would like to document the file format of regedit utility, so data can be merged into the registry.

From the command-line you can (silently) merge data from a batch file like this:

regedit /s file.reg

Exporting from a subkey goes like this:

regedit /e file.reg "HKEY_XX\key"


Remove keys and values by using the minus sign (-).


Documenting the .reg file format is really more Microsoft's job.
