I am trying to implement ogr2ogr to convert a PostGIS view to a shapefile
but cannot find any CLEAR examples of the syntax.  Especially for the

-dsco NAME=VALUE: Dataset creation option (format specific)
 -lco  NAME=VALUE: Layer creation option (format specific)

Does anyone have good examples of using this command especially specifying a
PostgreSQL data source (view) and a path to an output shapefile?
