Thanks. That (using DOS \C rather than sh
-c) got rid of the error message, but it did not seem to create
Looks like I have the wrong syntax, but it is
rather hard to look up the documentation!
I still feel uncomfortable using an undocumented
feature - no security it will not disappear or change.

Subject: RE: mkdbfile: create file in
Well, I just posed
this question - and mkdbfile was the suggestion that
However, I didn't
create a VOC entry. The idea (I believe) is to execute this command at the OS
prompt - not TCL.
Since it looks
like you're on Windows it would be something like so:
-c "cd C:\BeaconUV\DevelData\XXINV\KKINV; ':SYSTEM(32):'\bin\mkdbfile
DATA \XXINV\KKINV 30 1 4 20 50 80 1068'
Does anyone know anything about using mkdbfile
(from UV bin) to create a file in an account other than the current user
A colleague told me about it, but it does not
seem to be documented, and does not seem to work on my
10.0.17 system on Windows 2000, as it does on his UV 18.104.22.168 on Windows
I tried, according to his
Then, from TCL: mkdbfile
C:\BeaconUV\DevelData\XXINV\KKINV 30 1 4 20 50 80 1068
C:\BeaconUV\DevelData\XXINV\KKINV is pathname of
file to create
30 is file type
1 is modulo
4 is separation
20 is hash type
50 is max load
80 is split load
1096 is large record size
This gave error message: invalid filetype
I feel very nervous about using something that is
not documented, so presumably may not be reliably supported.
Anyone know anything, please?
