I don't know of any such tool. But then, I'm a memcache newbie.

Once you know the keys, you can easily write such a tool using any of
the APIs available.

In case you don't know the keys, I think there is no way to get at the
contents: you'd need a function giving you a list of keys (or a key
iterator), and judging from the C API, it looks like there is no such
thing - probably because there is no need for it.

If what I write is wrong, which may well be the case, please correct.
