NAME

       odbcinst - An unixODBC tool for manipulating configuration files

SYNOPSIS

       odbcinst ACTION OBJECT OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION

       odbcinst  is  a  command  line  tool  which  has  been created for allowing people who are
       developing the install scripts/RPMs for Drivers to be able to easily create/remove entries
       in odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini. This command line tool is a complement to the shared library
       of the same name (libodbcinst.so). This tool is  a  part  of  the  odbcinst  component  of
       unixODBC.

OPTIONS

   ACTIONS
       -i     Install (add section to config file) new OBJECT.

       -u     Uninstall (remove section from config file) existing OBJECT.

       -q     Query the config files and print the options for specified OBJECT.

       -j     Prints  current  configuration of unixODBC, listing (among others) the paths to the
              configuration files.

       -c     Calls SQLCreateDataSource

       -m     Calls SQLManageDataSources

       --version
              Prints program version and exits.

   OBJECTS
       -d     The ACTION affect drivers (and thus the odbcinst.ini configuration file).

       -s     The ACTION affect data sources (and thus the user or system odbc.ini  configuration
              file).

   OPTIONS
       -f FILE
              The  FILE  is template file, describing the configuration of installed OBJECT (only
              valid for the -i ACTION).

       -r     Same as the -f OPTION, only take the standard input as the template file.

       -n NAME
              Specifies the NAME of the OBJECT.

       -v     Turn off verbose mode. This turns off all information, warning and error messages.

       -l     The specified data source is system-wide. Has any effect only with the -s OBJECT.

       -h     The specified data source is user-specific. Has any effect only with the -s OBJECT.

RETURN VALUES

       This command returns zero on success and non-zero value on failure.
