I've seen that it's possible to download the SO public data dump Where is Stack Overflow's public data dump? , is it possible to filter it before downloading?

  • I'm pretty sure that's not possible. But why? Are you worried about your bandwidth, or something else? Aug 11, 2015 at 8:41
  • Something similar to meta.stackexchange.com/questions/20823/… , I'd like to use it offline

    Sure, but this doesn't explain why you want it filtered before downloading - you can download it all and filter yourself. No? Aug 11, 2015 at 9:05
  • I imagined that since now stack overflow provides the data explorer, I could perform the query on their server and download only the output. I haven't found how big is an unzipped dump, I don't know if I can process it
