NAME

       kdb-sget - Get the value of a key stored in the key database from a script

SYNOPSIS

       kdb sget <path> <default-value>

       Where  path  is  the  full  path  to the key and default-value is the value that should be
       printed if no value can be retrieved.

DESCRIPTION

       This command is used to retrieve the value of a key from within a script.
       When using the kdb tool in a script, the user should use the sget command in place of  the
       kdb-get(1) command.
       The  kdb-get(1)  command  should  not  be  used  in scripts because it may return an error
       instead of printing a value in certain circumstances.
       The sget command guarantees that a value will be printed (unless the  user  passes  faulty
       arugments).
       This  command  will  either print the value of the key it retrives or a default value that
       the user specifies.

EXAMPLES

       To get the value of a key from a script or return the value 0: kdb sget user/example/key 0

       To get the value of a key using a cascading lookup or return the value notfound:  kdb  get
       /example/key "notfound"
