NAME

       dbfadd - add a row to an xBase DBF file

SYNOPSIS

       dbfadd xbase_file field_values...

DESCRIPTION

       Adds  a  row  to  the  DBF  file  named  by  xbase_file  with  column  values given by the
       field_values options that follow. A NULL value is denoted by an empty argument.

OPTIONS

       xbase_file
              the name of an existing xBase file

       field_values
              list of values to be inserted into the xBase file. You must  specify  a  number  of
              values  equal  to the number of fields the xBase file has. The order of values must
              also reflect the order of fields inside xBase file.

EXAMPLE

       dbfadd testbase.dbf REGION1 25.656 150.22

       Assuming that testbase.dbf has 3 fields (NAME, AREA and VALUE),  this  command  line  will
       insert a new record into testbase.dbf with the value "REGION1" for NAME, ´25.656´ for AREA
       and ´150.22´ for VALUE field.

EXIT STATUS

       0      Successful program execution.

       1      Missing xbase_file or field_values arguments.

       2      Failed to open xbase_file for reading and appending.

       3      Too few values in field_values...

DIAGNOSTICS

       The following diagnostics may be issued on stdout:

       DBFOpen(xbase_file,"rb+") failed.

       Got count1 fields, but require count2

BUGS

       Field values that are too large to fit in a field are silently truncated from  the  right.
       Numeric field values that can´t be parsed by atof(3) get undefined values.
