adplugdb - AdPlug database maintenance utility


adplugdb [OPTION]... COMMAND [ARGUMENT]...


adplugdb maintains database files in AdPlug database format. It can add, list and remove
records within a central database, or merge a set of databases together into one single

adplugdb always operates on a central database file. The location of this database file is
determined by first checking if the user has a home directory. If a home directory is
present, the database file will be located in ~/.adplug/adplug.db. If a home directory is
not present, a database file adplug.db will be looked for in the current working

A system-wide database file can be used instead, by specifying the -s commandline option.
The system-wide database file is located in /usr/com/adplug/adplug.db and may only be
manipulated as the superuser. An arbitrary database file might be used as well, by
specifying the -d commandline parameter. Only one database file may be manipulated at a


adplugdb returns with a successful exit status (0 on most systems) on successful
operation. An unsuccessful exit status (1 on most systems) is returned otherwise.


Commands control the main operation mode of adplugdb. Commands can have a number of
arguments. Only one command may be specified at a time.

add This command takes a list of filenames, separated by spaces, as arguments. Each
file is examined and a record is added to the database if the file is supported by
AdPlug. By default, the record will be of type Plain, unless the -t commandline
option is specified (see below). The default comment entry is the specified
filename. If a record for a file is already in the database, it will be replaced by
the new record.

list This command takes an optional list of filenames or keys, separated by spaces, as
arguments. Each file is examined and the corresponding record is looked up from the
database and displayed on stdout, in a human-readable form. If no arguments are
given, all records from the database are displayed.

remove This command takes a list of filenames or keys, separated by spaces, as arguments.
Each file is examined and the corresponding record is removed from the database.

merge This command takes a list of database filenames, separated by spaces, as arguments.
Each database file is loaded and the contents are merged and written to the central
database file. The database files are processed in the order they are specified on
the commandline. Records from databases that were specified earlier take precedence
over records from databases that were specified later. Records from the central
database take precedence over all other records. This means that only additional
records from the other databases will be added to the central database and if a
record is found that is not already in the central database, the version from the
earliest specified database that contains this record will be taken. In no way will
records ever be overwritten in the central database.


The order of the option commandline parameters is not important.

Database options:
-d <file>
Specify an arbitrary file to use as the central database.

-s Use the system-wide database file as the central database. This option is only
present if adplugdb was compiled with system-wide database file support.

-t <type>
Specify a record type to be used as the type for all newly added records. Each
record needs a special type to be useful to AdPlug's players. The commandline help,
displayed using the -h commandline option, presents a list of types that may be

-c Prompt for record comment. If this option is given, the user will be prompted and
asked for each newly added record's comment.

-k Specify keys instead of filenames. If this option is given, all command arguments
that normally are filenames are expected to be record keys instead. Each record in
the database has a unique identifying key, generated from the corresponding file's
contents. To manipulate a record entry, you either must have the exact same file
and specify its name, or you specify the record's key, using this option. Keys are
specified the same way they are displayed using the list command, as CRC16:CRC32
value in hexadecimal format.

Generic options:
-q, --quiet
Be more quiet.

-v, --verbose
Be more verbose.

-h, --help
Show summary of commandline commands, arguments and options.

-V, --version
Show version and author information of the program.
