ovdb_recover - Perform recovery on the ovdb database, if needed
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).
