NAME
       odbcinst - An unixODBC tool for manipulating configuration files

SYNOPSIS
       odbcinst ACTION OBJECT OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION
       odbcinst  is a command line tool which has been created for allowing people who are devel-
       oping the install scripts/RPMs for Drivers to be able to easily create/remove  entries  in
       odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini. This command line tool is a complement to the shared library of
       the same name (libodbcinst.so). This tool is a part of the odbcinst component of unixODBC.

OPTIONS
   ACTIONS
       -i     Install (add section to config file) new OBJECT.

       -u     Uninstall (remove section from config file) existing OBJECT.

       -q     Query the config files and print the options for specified OBJECT.

       -j     Prints current configuration of unixODBC, listing (among others) the paths  to  the
	      configuration files.

       -c     Calls SQLCreateDataSource

       -m     Calls SQLManageDataSources

       --version
	      Prints program version and exits.

   OBJECTS
       -d     The ACTION affect drivers (and thus the odbcinst.ini configuration file).

       -s     The  ACTION affect data sources (and thus the user or system odbc.ini configuration
	      file).

   OPTIONS
       -f FILE
	      The FILE is template file, describing the configuration of installed  OBJECT  (only
	      valid for the -i ACTION).

       -r     Same as the -f OPTION, only take the standard input as the template file.

       -n NAME
	      Specifies the NAME of the OBJECT.

       -v     Turn off verbose mode. This turns off all information, warning and error messages.

       -l     The specified data source is system-wide. Has any effect only with the -s OBJECT.

       -h     The specified data source is user-specific. Has any effect only with the -s OBJECT.

RETURN VALUES
       This command returns zero on success and non-zero value on failure.

FILES
       /etc/odbinst.ini
	      Configuration   file  containing	all  the  database  drivers  specifications.  See
	      odbcinst.ini(5) for more details.
