NAME

       pdbv - generate a (X)HTML view of the dpkg or rpm database

SYNOPSIS

       pdbv [options]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page documents the pdbv command.  The program generates a
       navigable view of the dpkg or rpm database of the system it is  invoked
       on. The resulting (X)HTML output can be viewed with a browser.

       It  starts  to  look  for  a file named /etc/pdbv/pdbvrc then for files
       named $HOME/.pdbvrc and $HOME/.pdbvrc2.  Finally it uses  command  line
       arguments.

OPTIONS

       The  programs  follows  the  usual  GNU  command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.

       -d, --dir=/path
              Output  directory.  A  directory  called pdbv will be created in
              there.

       --xhtml
              Generate XHTML output (default).

       --listing=type
              Type of listing : basic, group (by  section/group),  date,  all.
              (this  option  applies  to  xhtml/html  output) (missing in pdbv
              2.0.x)

       --light
              Run faster but generate a less polished  output.  For  instance,
              links  will  not be created from urls and emails. You should not
              use this option unless pdbv take more than a minute to run.

       -f, --force
              Update all entries, even if they seem up-to-date.

       --debug
              Print out debug messages, use warnings.

       --cron=delay
              Run only if the cron delay specified  on  the  command  line  is
              equal  to  the  cron  delay specified in the configuration file.
              This option is used in /etc/cron.d/pdbv

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       --version
              Show version of program.
