DESCRIPTION

       db.createdb  allows  the  user to create a new empty database through different drivers. A
       working database connection needs to be established, see db.login.

       Currently only SQLite and PostgreSQL database drivers are supported.

EXAMPLES

   Create a new SQLite file-based database
       Note that the standard GRASS GIS SQLite database is by default  generated  in  the  user’s
       current mapset. This example shows an out-of-mapset database file creation:
       db.createdb driver=sqlite database=/opt/sqlite.db

   Create a new PostgreSQL database
       Create  a new PostgreSQL database (after the PostgreSQL connection got established through
       the pg driver):
       db.createdb driver=pg database=grassdb

       Create a new PostgreSQL database (after the PostgreSQL connection got established  through
       the odbc driver):
       db.createdb driver=odbc database=grassdb

TODO

       Support other database drivers, too.
