update -c catalog [-f field -k key [-t table] value]
DESCRIPTIONInterchange's "update" is a rudimentary method of directly setting the DBM files (not the ASCII files) of a Interchange DBM database.
NOTE: This command DOES NOT APPLY TO SQL databases. They have their own command line monitors that are more flexible.
- -c name
- Sets the catalog for which "update" operates. It reads the catalog.cfg file to retrieve database settings.
- -f field
- The name of the field to set.
- -n name
- The name of the table to set. If the table is not a DBM database the "update" program will terminate with an error.
