editmap - query and edit single records in database maps for sendmail
editmap [-C file] [-N] [-f] [-q|-u|-x] maptype mapname key [ "value
Editmap queries or edits one record in database maps used by the keyed
map lookups in sendmail(8). Arguments are passed on the command line
and output (for queries) is directed to standard output.
Depending on how it is compiled, editmap handles up to three different
database formats, selected using the maptype parameter. They may be
dbm DBM format maps. This requires the ndbm(3) library.
btree B-Tree format maps. This requires the new Berkeley DB library.
hash Hash format maps. This also requires the Berkeley DB library.
If the TrustedUser option is set in the sendmail configuration file and
editmap is invoked as root, the generated files will be owned by the

-f Normally all upper case letters in the key are folded to lower
case. This flag disables that behaviour. This is intended to
mesh with the -f flag in the K line in sendmail.cf. The value
is never case folded.
-q Query the map for the specified key. If found, print value to
standard output and exit with 0. If not found then print an
error message to stdout and exit with EX_UNAVAILABLE.
-u Update the record for key with value or inserts a new record if
one doesn't exist. Exits with 0 on success or EX_IOERR on
-x Deletes the specific key from the map. Exits with 0 on success
or EX_IOERR on failure.
The editmap command has no history.
