       brecsum - Generate SHA1 sums of raw Blackberry database records.


       brecsum [-d db][-h][-p pin][-P pass][-v]


       brecsum  downloads  the  specified  database(s)  and  computes a SHA1 checksum on each raw
       record it finds.  The SHA1 sums are written to stdout.

       This is mainly useful for verifying the integrity of restored data during testing.


       -d db  Specify the database to download and sum.  This option may be given multiple  times
              to  fetch  more  than  one  database.   See btool's -t option to retrieve a list of
              databases on your device.

       -i     Include DB Name, Type, and Unique record IDs in the checksums.

       -p pin Specify the PIN of the device to talk  to.   Only  needed  if  there  are  multiple
              Blackberries plugged into your system at once.

       -P pass
              Simplistic method to specify device password.  In a real application, this would be
              done using a more secure prompt.

       -v     Dump verbose protocol data during operation.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.


       In the event of a fatal error, the message will be written to stderr, with an  error  code
       of 1.
