NAME

       mdb_load - LMDB environment import tool

SYNOPSIS

       mdb_load [-V] [-f file] [-n] [-s subdb] [-N] [-T]  envpath

DESCRIPTION

       The  mdb_load utility reads from the standard input and loads it into the LMDB environment
       envpath.

       The input to mdb_load must be in the output format specified by the mdb_dump(1) utility or
       as specified by the -T option below.

OPTIONS

       -V     Write the library version number to the standard output, and exit.

       -f file
              Read from the specified file instead of from the standard input.

       -n     Load an LMDB database which does not use subdirectories.

       -s subdb
              Load  a  specific subdatabase. If no database is specified, data is loaded into the
              main database.

       -N     Don't overwrite existing records when loading into an  already  existing  database;
              just skip them.

       -T     Load data from simple text files. The input must be paired lines of text, where the
              first line of the pair is the key item, and the second line  of  the  pair  is  its
              corresponding data item.

              A  simple escape mechanism, where newline and backslash (\) characters are special,
              is applied to  the  text  input.  Newline  characters  are  interpreted  as  record
              separators.   Backslash  characters  in  the text will be interpreted in one of two
              ways: If the backslash character precedes another  backslash  character,  the  pair
              will be interpreted as a literal backslash. If the backslash character precedes any
              other character, the two characters following the backslash will be interpreted  as
              a  hexadecimal  specification  of a single character; for example, \0a is a newline
              character in the ASCII character set.

              For this reason, any backslash or newline characters that naturally  occur  in  the
              text input must be escaped to avoid misinterpretation by mdb_load.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Exit  status  is  zero  if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a
       diagnostic message being written to standard error.
