SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

       A  wrapper  to  makedb(8zm) supplying various default values from ZENV-
       variables, and doing database type specific file version  rotations  so
       that  data users can safely take into use a new version of the database
       at their earliest convenient moment.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       available, a "configured in" default value will be used instead.

Z-ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

              sysadmin hasn’t chosen something else.
