NAME
nfcomment - a user interface to the notesfile system SYNOPSIS
nfcomment ( notesfile, text, title, dirflag, anonflag ) char *nfname, *text, *title; cc ... -lnfcom DESCRIPTION
Nfcomment provides user programs with the ability to insert notes into a notesfile. The note is inserted into the notesfile specified by nfname. Text is the address of the body of the note; this must be null-terminated. If text is NULL, the note is gathered from standard input until an EOF is encountered. The note is entered with the title specified by the title parameter. If the dirflag or anonflag parameters are non-zero, the director message is enabled or the note is entered anony- mously. These take effect only if the user has the appropriate priviledges in the notesfile. Nfpipe is used to make the actual insertion of the text. FILES

NFDUMP(8)						      System Manager's Manual							 NFDUMP(8)

NAME
nfdump, nfload - notesfile dump/load programs SYNOPSIS
nfdump notesfile nfload [ -Ddirectory ] notesfile DESCRIPTION
Nfdump and nfload are used to convert notesfile data base formats. Nfdump converts the specified notesfile to a portable ASCII format and writes it to standard output. Some diagnostics are produced on stderr. Nfdump can be run by any user; access to a particular notesfile is governed by that notesfile's access list. Nfload is used on the output from nfdump to create a new notesfile. The -D option specifies an alternate base directory for the notesfile. If unspecified, this defaults to ``/usr/spool/notes''. Nfload reads standard input for the ASCII representation of the notesfile. Typical use of these two programs occurs when converting an existing notesfile data base to a new format. The nfdump program should be compiled with the older structure definitions while nfload is compiled with the newer structures. The data base can then be converted with a shell script of the following nature: mkdir .OLD mv * .OLD for i in `ls .OLD` do echo $i start nfdump $i | nfload -D/usr/spool/newnotes $i done echo $i done echo ALL DONE rm -rf .OLD This assumes that the old data base is in ``/usr/spool/notes'' and the new data base is to be placed in ``/usr/spool/newnotes''. After the conversion is complete, one can move the old data base from ``/usr/spool/notes'' to ``/usr/spool/oldformat'' and the new data base from ``/usr/spool/newnotes'' to ``/usr/spool/notes''.
