I could, of course, create a data-only dump (in fact I've already done
it). However, when restoring, I cannot use pg_restore since it's in
plain format, don't you? pg_restore only works with tar or compressed
formats, I think. I could restore data-only dump with psql, but then
I've to disable triggers and psql does not have an option in order to
Second one. You say I could restore a compressed dumpfile into a
plaintext file. Is this possible? How? And after cleaning this plaintext
file, how do I restore it again into database without using psql since
pg_restore only accept tar or compressed file formats?
Thank you, Josh.

1. restore your schema, with triggers, using a pg_dump
--schema-only ... ; pg_restore ...
2. Create a psql-loadable data-only dump using pg_dump --data-only
--disable-triggers --format=p ...
3. clean the data-only dump and restore
Or, you could do a full pg_dump -Fc ... of your database, then use
pg_restore to restore the compressed dumpfile into a plaintext file
(i.e. pg_restore [options] filename). Then run your cleanup on the
plaintext file, and reload.
