NAME

     flamerobin — management and data manipulation tool for the Firebird DBMS

SYNOPSIS

     flamerobin [-h directory | --home=directory] [-uh directory | --user-home=directory]

DESCRIPTION

     flamerobin is a graphical frontend to the Firebird DBMS.  It is small and simple, yet offers
     all the basic features needed to create and manipulate databases, execute queries and
     perform administrative tasks.

     This manual page only documents the run-time options and environment of flamerobin.
     Information about using the GUI may be obtained by selecting the Help -> Manual menu item
     once the application is running.

     flamerobin uses two directory hierarchies for its normal operation.  The data directory
     contains the templates for property pages, the default configuration and the on-line
     documentation grouped into three sub-directories as follows:

     conf-defs       default configuration
     docs            on-line documentation
     html-templates  templates for property pages

     The user home directory contains the per-user configuration, comprising three entries:

     fr_databases.conf  this file stores the user's registered databases.
     fr_settings.conf   this file stores the user's preferences related to the flamerobin GUI.
     history            this directory holds the SQL statement history, one item per file.

     flamerobin accepts several options, which are described as follows:

     -h directory
     --home=directory
             Use directory as the data directory (but see ENVIRONMENT below).

     -uh directory
     --user-home=directory
             Use directory as the user home directory (but see ENVIRONMENT and CAVEATS below).

ENVIRONMENT

     FR_HOME
             Specifies an alternate location for the flamerobin data directory.

             If both -h (or --home) and this environment variable are set, the command line
             argument takes precedence.

     FR_USER_HOME
             Specifies an alternate location for the flamerobin user home directory.

             If both -uh (or --user-home) and this environment variable are set, the command line
             argument takes precedence.

FILES

     /usr/share/flamerobin
             The default flamerobin data directory.

     ~/.flamerobin
             The default flamerobin user home directory.

AUTHORS

     flamerobin was written by The FlameRobin Development Team ⟨http://www.flamerobin.org/⟩.

CAVEATS

     flamerobin only writes files under the user home directory.  If flamerobin is configured so
     that this directory and the files contained therein are shared among several users or
     concurrent instances of flamerobin, no precaution is taken to avoid overwriting settings
     created by other users or other application instances.

NOTES

     The specification of the data directory and the user home directory (regardless of whether
     they occur in the environment or on the command line) may be the literal string “$app” which
     translates to a common data folder determined at compilation time, or “$user” which
     translates to the user local data directory. These options currently have effect only on
     Windows platform.
