I often export data with psqland feed to a spreadsheet, like this:
$ psql -F'<tab>' -Ac 'select col1,col2 from aview' >aview.csv
$ OOo aview.csv
Perhaps that will work for you. <tab> is generated by typing ctrl-v,
then <tab>. ctrl-v inserts the next char literally. I dunno about the
ill begotten csh-derivatives. Fortunately, I've never had conflicts with
the delimiter choice and the data. You may not be so lucky.
If you're truly looking for the view data in pg_dump format, the only
thing I can think of is to materialize the view and dump that.
A similar effect could be obtained by synthesizing a create table
statement appropriate for the psql data export as above and using the
copy command to load data. That could all be wrapped into a single file
to be passed to psql for loading.
