This manual page documents briefly the dptsv commands.

The command dptsv features mutual conversion between a database of Depot and a TSV text. This command is useful when data exchange with another version of QDBM or another DBM, or when data exchange between systems which have different byte orders. This command is used in the above format. name specifies a database name.

The subcommand export reads TSV data from the standard input.  If a key overlaps, the latter is adopted. -bnum specifies the number of the elements of the bucket array. The subcommand import writes TSV data to the standard output.


A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the file:///usr/share/doc/qdbm-doc/spex.html#depotcli.

-bnum num

treat records as Base64 format.


For example, to make a database to search `/etc/password' by a user name, perform the following command.
   cat /etc/passwd | tr ':' ' ' | dptsv import casket

Thus, to retrieve the information of a user `mikio', perform the following command.
   dpmgr get casket mikio
