Python script for dumping wallet addresses and private keys
#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
# This software is in the public domain, furnished "as is", without technical
# support, and with no warranty, express or implied, as to its usefulness for
# any purpose.
# Usage:
# ./ <wallet binary>
# Simple Python program that communicates with your <whatever>coin wallet
# (assuming it's bitcoin wallet compatible) in order to list all addresses
# together with their private keys. Both normally visible and hidden/secret
# addresses are listed.
# There is no error handling. Make sure the wallet binary is in the search
# path, or pass its full path.
