       dptest read [-wb] name

       The  command  `dptest'  is  a  utility  for  facility  test and performance test.  Check a
       database generated by the command or measure the execution  time  of  the  command.   This
       command  is  used  in  the  following  format.   `name' specifies a database name.  `rnum'
       specifies the number of the records.  `bnum' specifies the number of the elements  of  the
       bucket  array.  `pnum' specifies the number of patterns of the keys. `align' specifies the
       basic size of alignment.  `fbpsiz' specifies the size of the free block pool.

       dptest write [-s] name rnum bnum
              Store records with keys of 8 bytes.  They change as `00000001', `00000002'...

       dptest read [-wb] name
              Retrieve all records of the database above.

       dptest rcat [-c] name rnum bnum pnum align fbpsiz
              Store records with partway duplicated keys using concatenate mode.

       dptest combo name
              Perform combination test of various operations.

       dptest wicked [-c] name rnum
              Perform updating operations selected at random.

       Options feature the following.

              -s : make the file sparse.
              -wb : use the function `dpgetwb' instead of the function `dpget'.
              -c : perform comparison test with map of Cabin.

       This command  returns  0  on  success,  another  on  failure.   The  environment  variable
       `QDBMDBGFD'  specifies  the file descriptor to output the history of updating the variable
