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''.

nfstats - Print statistics about Notesfiles SYNOPSIS
nfstats [ -s ] topic [ ... ] DESCRIPTION
Nfstats prints usage statistics for notesfiles. This program takes a list of notesfiles and lists their statistics on standard output. If more than one notesfile is specified, an aggregate set of statistics is also produced. Specify -s to have only this aggregate report printed and the individual reports suppressed. BUGS
Notes sent to two sites are counted as ``networked out'' twice. Sequencing past an idle notesfile isn't counted as an entry. This is a mixed blessing. Not keeping this statistic greatly improves per- formance. FILES
