[rrd-users] Converting rrd files from one system to another

I am using rrtool 1.0.45 on Solaris 9 for mrtg and CPU stats via 
routers2.cgi.  I need to convert the files to an AIX system 5.2 ML4 
running rrdtool 1.0.49.  I searched the archives for hints and looked at 
the documentation for using xport but I cna't get it right.  For every 
.rrd file I have to I have to specify start and stop times for everything 
in it.   I was hoping I could write a simple shell loop to dump 
for x in `ls *.rrd`
rrdtool xport ${x} > ${x}_xport
However trying to dump a file without including command line arguments 
gets me an error.  I'm not sure what command line arguments I need.  Can 
someone point me to an example on the line of "rrdtool conversion for 
dummies." :)

Thanks in advance,
