dbcoldefine — define the columns of a plain text file to make it an Fsdb file

Synopsis

dbcoldefine [-F x] [column...]

Description

This program writes a new header before the data with the specified column names. It does not do any validation of the data contents; it is up to the user to verify that, other than the header, the input datastream is a correctly formatted Fsdb file.

Options

-F or --fs or --fieldseparator s
Specify the field separator.
--header H
Give the columns and field separator as a full Fsdb header (including "#fsdb"). Can only be used alone, not with other specifications.

This module also supports the standard fsdb options:

-d
Enable debugging output.
-i or --input InputSource
Read from InputSource, typically a file name, or "-" for standard input, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
-o or --output OutputDestination
Write to OutputDestination, typically a file name, or "-" for standard output, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
--autorun or --noautorun
By default, programs process automatically, but Fsdb::Filter objects in Perl do not run until you invoke the run() method. The "--(no)autorun" option controls that behavior within Perl.
--help
Show help.
--man
Show full manual.
