       dptsv - mutual converter between TSV and QDBM Depot database


       dptsv import [-bnum num] [-bin] name
       dptsv export [-bin] name


       This manual page documents briefly the dptsv commands.

       The  command  dptsv features mutual conversion between a database of Depot and a TSV text.
       This command is useful when data exchange with another version of QDBM or another DBM,  or
       when  data exchange between systems which have different byte orders. This command is used
       in the above format. name specifies a database name.

       The subcommand export reads TSV data from the standard input.   If  a  key  overlaps,  the
       latter  is  adopted.  -bnum  specifies the number of the elements of the bucket array. The
       subcommand import writes TSV data to the standard output.


       A  summary  of  options  is  included  below.   For  a  complete  description,   see   the

       -bnum num
              specify the number of the elements of the bucket array.

       -bin   treat records as Base64 format.


       For  example,  to  make  a  database to search `/etc/password' by a user name, perform the
       following command.
           cat /etc/passwd | tr ':' '' | dptsv import casket

       Thus, to retrieve the information of a user `mikio', perform the following command.
           dpmgr get casket mikio


       qdbm(3), dpmgr(1), dpopen(3).
