       makedbz - rebuild dbz files

       makedbz [ -f filename ] [ -i ] [ -o ] [ -s size ]

       Makedbz	 rebuilds   dbz(3)   database.	  The	default   name	 of   the  text  file  is
       <pathdb in inn.conf>/history; to specify a different name, use the ``-f'' flag.

       -f     If the ``-f'' flag is used, then the database files are named file.dir , file.index
	      and  file.hash.	If the ``-f'' flag is not used, then a temporary link to the name
	      history.n is made and the database files are  written  as  history.n.index  ,  his-
	      tory.n.hash and history.n.dir.

       -i     To  ignore  the  old database use the ``-i'' flag.  Using the ``-o'' or ``-s'' flag
	      implies the ``-i'' flag.

       -o     If the ``-o'' flag is used, then the link is not	made  and  any	existing  history
	      files  are  overwritten.	If the old database exists, makedbz will use it to deter-
	      mine the size of the new database.

       -s     The program will also ignore any old database if the ``-s'' flag is used to specify
	      the  approximate	number of entries in the new database.	Accurately specifying the
	      size is an optimization that will create a  more	efficient  database.   (The  size
	      should  be  the  estimated eventual size of the file, typically the size of the old
	      file.)  For more information, see the discussion of dbzfresh and dbzsize in dbz(3).
