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).
