NAME
       accessdb - dumps the content of a man-db database in a human readable format.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/accessdb [-hV] [<index-file>]

DESCRIPTION
       accessdb will output the data contained within a man-db database in a human readable form.
       By default, it will dump the data from /var/cache/man/index.<db-type>, where <db-type>  is
       dependent on the database library in use.

       Supplying an argument to accessdb will override this default.
