Import/Export triggers

In import/export, how do I import only triggers in a dump file?

IMPORT does not have a parameter for TRIGGERS only. EXPORT has the ability to include or exclude triggers using the TRIGGERS parameter (TRIGGERS=N indicates to not include triggers), but there is no corresponding parameter available for IMPORT. I'm afraid that if all you want to import is just the triggers, you'll not be able to accomplish just that alone.
