       crtsv - mutual converter between TSV and QDBM Curia database


       crtsv import [-bnum num] [-dnum num] [-bin] name
       crtsv export [-bin] name


       This manual page documents briefly the crtsv commands.

       The  command  crtsv  features  mutual  conversion between a database of
       Curia and a TSV text. This command is useful when  data  exchange  with
       another  version  of QDBM or another DBM, or when data exchange between
       systems which have different byte orders. This command is used  in  the
       above  format.  name  specifies  a database name. The subcommand export
       reads TSV data from the standard input.  If a key overlaps, the  latter
       is  adopted.  -bnum  specifies the number of the elements of the bucket
       array. -dnum specifies the number of  division  of  the  database.  The
       subcommand import writes TSV data to the standard output.


       A  summary  of  options is included below.  For a complete description,
       see the file:///usr/share/doc/qdbm-doc/spex.html#curiacli.

       -bnum num
              specify the number of the elements of the bucket array.

       -dnum num
              specify the number of division of the database.

       -bin   treat records as Base64 format.


       For example, to make a database to search  ‘/etc/password’  by  a  user
       name, perform the following command.
           cat /etc/passwd | tr:’ ’’ | crtsv import casket

       Thus,  to  retrieve  the  information  of  a  user ‘mikio’, perform the
       following command.
           crmgr get casket mikio


       qdbm(3), crmgr(1), curia(3), cropen(3).
