       dptsv - mutual converter between TSV and QDBM Depot database


       dptsv import [-bnum num] [-bin] name
       dptsv export [-bin] name


       This manual page documents briefly the dptsv commands.

       The  command  dptsv  features  mutual  conversion between a database of
       Depot 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. 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#depotcli.

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

       -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:’ ’’ | dptsv import casket

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


       qdbm(3), dpmgr(1), dpopen(3).
