the "manpage" (ie usage) for regedit is showed like for another console
windows program :
regedit /?

Of course, see in the usage, regedit /e eXPORTS the current 
registry in a text file.
Copy-Paste from the source :
"    /E - exports contents of the specified registry key to the
"	file. Exports the whole registry if no key is specified.\n"

reg.dat isnt part of the windows registry anymore. (only valid for Win
3.x) No program should try to read it.
Wine hasnt got any *.dat for registry since it uses $HOME/.wine/*reg.
