EDITMAP(8)									       EDITMAP(8)

NAME
       editmap - query and edit single records in database maps for sendmail

SYNOPSIS
       editmap [-C file] [-N] [-f] [-q|-u|-x] maptype mapname key [ "value ..." ]

DESCRIPTION
       Editmap	queries  or  edits  one  record in database maps used by the keyed map lookups in
       sendmail(8).  Arguments are passed on  the  command  line  and  output  (for  queries)  is
       directed to standard output.

       Depending  on  how it is compiled, editmap handles up to three different database formats,
       selected using the maptype parameter.  They may be

       dbm    DBM format maps.	This requires the ndbm(3) library.

       btree  B-Tree format maps.  This requires the new Berkeley DB library.

       hash   Hash format maps.  This also requires the Berkeley DB library.

       If the TrustedUser option is set in the sendmail configuration file and editmap is invoked
       as root, the generated files will be owned by the specified TrustedUser.

   Flags
       -C     Use  the	specified  sendmail  configuration  file  for  looking up the TrustedUser
	      option.

       -N     Include the null byte that terminates strings in the map (for alias maps).

       -f     Normally all upper case letters in the key are folded to	lower  case.   This  flag
	      disables	that  behaviour.  This is intended to mesh with the -f flag in the K line
	      in sendmail.cf.  The value is never case folded.

       -q     Query the map for the specified key.  If found, print value to standard output  and
	      exit  with  0.   If  not	found then print an error message to stdout and exit with
	      EX_UNAVAILABLE.

       -u     Update the record for key with value or inserts a new record if one doesn't  exist.
	      Exits with 0 on success or EX_IOERR on failure.

       -x     Deletes  the  specific  key  from  the map.  Exits with 0 on success or EX_IOERR on
	      failure.
