testdbfawk — scan dbfawk files for matching dbf file for map rendering in xastir

Synopsis

testdbfawk [-f file.awk| -D dir] -d file.dbf

Description

Scan dbfawk files for matching dbf file for map rendering in xastir

--help prints command line usage
-D for dir containing *.dbfawk files.
-f for file containing awk rules.
-d for dbf file to parse

Examples

testdbfawk -D . -d tgr36119lkA.dbf 2>&1|less

testdbfawk scans the current directory for dbfawk files with signatures that match tgr36119lkA.dbf's signature. testdbfawk dumps its output to standard error, so in the example standard error is redirected to standard out and piped into "less" for paging.

Notes

Dbfawk hints and kinks: You have to think like an awk programmer and realize that the order that rules are listed matters, that it's important to use "next" as soon as it makes sense so other rules aren't looked at unnecessarily and, to use "skip" when you want to fix bad dbf data.
