SYNOPSIS

       makedb  [[-l|-u]    [-A]   [-a|-u]   [-s|-v]]   dbtype   dbfilenamebase
               [inputfile|-]

DESCRIPTION

       This is underlying binary tool to actually compile the system  specific
       text sources into binary database in currently supported forms.

       This  is  intended  to  be  run under some other wrappers, which supply
       defaults for the parameters and options per each usage case.

       Options:

       -A
          Append new data at the end of the previous data with same label.

          This will insert ", " (comma-space) or nothing in  between  old  and
          new data, depending upon operational mode.

       -a
          Use  aliases(5zm)  rules  about labels, and line continuation in the
          source.

       -p
          Compiles smtpserver(8zm)  policy  configuration  database  into  its
          binary representation.

       -l | -u
          Per  default  the labels are stored into the binary databases as is,
          but user can decide to pre-translate them either to  all  lowercase,
          or all uppercase by obvious choise of switch.

       -s
          Do  the  work  silently,  report success/failure only by the exit(2)
          codes.

       -v
          Jabber about the progress of the work.

       The rest of the parameters (mandatory and optional) are:

       dbtype
          Whatever has been compiled in the system at the moment.

          The tool will report supported embedded  databases  in  its  "usage"
          error report.

       [inputfile|-]
          When nothing is defined,

FILES

       Command line inputs do fully control the behaviour of this tool.  There
       are no e.g.  ZENV-variables, nor any files this reads besides of  given
       inputs.
