       recset - manipulate fields in a recfile


       recset [OPTION]... [FILE]...


       Alter or delete fields in records.

              don't use external descriptors.

              alter the records even if violating record restrictions.

       --help print a help message and exit.

              show version and exit.

   Record selection options:
       -i, --case-insensitive
              make strings case-insensitive in selection expressions.

       -t, --type=TYPE
              operate on records of the specified type only.

       -e, --expression=RECORD_EXPR
              selection expression.

       -q, --quick=STR
              select records with fields containing a string.

       -n, --number=NUM,...
              select specific records by position, with ranges.

       -m, --random=NUM
              select a given number of random records.

   Field selection options:
       -f, --fields=FIELDS
              comma-separated list of field names with optional subscripts.

       -s, --set=VALUE
              change the value of the selected fields.

       -a, --add=VALUE
              add the selected fields with the given value.

       -S, --set-add=VALUE
              change  the value of the selected fields.  If they don't exist then add a new field
              with that value.

       -r, --rename=NAME
              rename the selected fields to a given name.  If an entire record  set  is  selected
              then the field is renamed in the record descriptor as well.

       -d, --delete
              delete the selected fields.

       -c, --comment
              comment out the selected fields.
