NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for services_mkdb (netbsd section 8)

SERVICES_MKDB(8)		   BSD System Manager's Manual			 SERVICES_MKDB(8)

     services_mkdb -- generate the services databases

     services_mkdb [-qv] [-o database] [-V style] [file]
     services_mkdb -u [file]

     services_mkdb creates a db(3) database for the specified file.  If no file is specified,
     then /etc/services is used.  The database is installed into /var/db/services.cdb for CDB
     format and into /var/db/services.db for DB format (see -V).  The file must be in the correct
     format (see services(5)).

     The options are as follows:

     -o database
	     Put the output databases in the named file.

     -q      Don't warn about duplicate services.  This is the default behavior.

     -u      Print the services file to stdout, omitting duplicate entries and comments.

     -V      Create a specific version of the database style.  style can be cdb to request the
	     CDB format (default) or db to request the DB format.  The DB format is useful for
	     compatibility with old statically linked binaries.

     -v      Warn about duplicate services.

     The databases are used by the C library services routines (see getservent(3)).

     services_mkdb exits zero on success, non-zero on failure.

     /var/db/services.db       The current services database.
     /var/db/services.db.tmp   A temporary file.
     /etc/services	       The current services file.

     db(3), getservent(3), services(5)

     Because services_mkdb guarantees not to install a partial destination file it must build a
     temporary file in the same file system and if successful use rename(2) to install over the
     destination file.

     If services_mkdb fails it will leave the previous version of the destination file intact.
