       ovdb_recover - Perform recovery on the ovdb database, if needed

       ovdb_recover [-f]

       Attempts to open the ovdb database, and if the database needs recovery, it attempts to
       perform the recovery.  Similar in function to the BerkeleyDB db_recover command.

       Specify the `-f' option to force a recovery, even if the database appears to not need it.
       It is not an error to perform a recovery operation on a clean database.	However, do not
       run `ovdb_recover -f' while the database is in use by any other processes.

       Returns exit status of 0 if the database did not need recovery or if recovery succeeded,
       and returns exit status 1 if recovery failed.  In the latter case, the database may be
       damaged beyond repair, requiring a rebuild with makehistory(8).

       This command is normally called automatically by rc.news(8).
