NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       exim_dbmbuild - program to build a database file for exim

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       exim_dbmbuild inputfile basename

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The exim_dbmbuild program reads an input file in the format of an alias
       file (see chapter 20) and writes a DBM database using  the  lower-cased
       alias  names  as keys and the remainder of the information as data. Two
       arguments are required: the name of the input file (which can be a single
  hyphen  to	indicate the standard input), and the base name of the
       output database. For example:

	 exim_dbmbuild /etc/aliases /etc/aliases

       reads  the  system  alias  file	and  creates  a  DBM  database	 using
       /etc/aliases  as  the base name. In systems that use the ndbm routines,
       the  database  consists	of   two   files   called   (in   this	 case)
       /etc/aliases.dir  and /etc/aliases.pag, while in systems using the ndbm
       interface to the db routines a single file  called  /etc/aliases.db  is
       used. If the native db interface is in use (USE_DB is set in a compiletime
 configuration file) then a single file with  no  added  prefix  is
       used.  In this case the two file names on the command line must be different.
 The utility in fact creates  the  database  under  a  temporary
       name, and then renames the file(s).

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       There  is  extensive documentation available in /usr/share/doc/exim and
       in the info system regarding exim.  Please be sure to have the exim-doc
       package installed.
