addtable [-h] [-d database] [-l tablename] [-c comment] [-u user]
[-p password] [-b bits] filename
addtable is used to add a table file to a database.
This could be done as a fast way to copy a table to another database,
if you need to restore a table from a backup, or to move a table to a
different disk partition. Table files have a
and typically have the same name as the table. With the
option to addtable you can give a different name to the table within
Texis instead of the default, which is taken from the filename. The
-d option indicates which database you want to add the table
to, with the current directory being the default. A comment can be
SYSTABLES with the
-c option. You can also specify
a Texis user and password to log in to the database when the table is
added. The default is to log in as
PUBLIC with an empty
-b option specifies the file bit size of the file.
Some platforms have 32- and 64-bit file bit size Texis versions, and
the tables are not binary compatible. (The file bit size is given
by the fourth dash-separated "word" in parentheses output at the
texis -version.) By specifying the source file's bit
-b, it can usually be converted to the bit size of
the local Texis version, if that differs. Added in version
4.01.1030377945 Aug 26 2002.
You should not use
addtable on a file which is part of another
database unless it is a read-only table.
This is the simplest case, which will add the table example to the current database.
addtable -d /usr/local/morph3/texis/testdb -l sample -c "Sample table"
-u MyUserName -p MyPassword /home/data/example.tbl
This will add the file
/home/data/example.tbl to the database
/usr/local/morph3/texis/testdb in which it will be known as
sample. The table will be owned by MyUserName.
