kdb-setmeta - Set the value of a meta key
kdb setmeta <key-name> <meta-name> <meta-value> Where key-name is the path to the key that the meta key is associated with, meta-name is the name of the meta key the user would like to set the value of (or create), and meta-value is the value the user wishes to set the meta key to.
This command allows the user to set the value of an individual meta key. If a key does not already exist and the user tries setting a meta key associated with it, the key will be created with a null value. There is some special handling for the meta data atime, mtime and ctime. They will be converted to time_t. For cascading keys, the namespace will default to spec, because that is the place where you usually want to set meta data.
-H, --help Show the man page. -V, --version Print version info. -v, --verbose Explain what is happening.
To set a meta key called description associated with the key user/example/key to the value Hello World!: kdb setmeta spec/example/key description "Hello World!" To create a new key spec/example/newkey with a null value (if it did not exist before) and a meta key namespace/#0 associated with it to the value system: kdb setmeta /example/newkey "namespace/#0" system
