NAME
       odbcinst - An unixODBC tool for manipulating configuration files


SYNOPSIS
       odbcinst ACTION OBJECT OPTIONS


DESCRIPTION
       odbcinst  is  a  command  line tool which has been created for allowing
       people who are developing the install scripts/RPMs for  Drivers  to  be
       able to easily create/remove entries in odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini. This
       command line tool is a complement to the shared  library  of  the  same
       name (libodbcinst.so). This tool is a part of the odbcinst component of
       unixODBC.


OPTIONS
   ACTIONS
       -i     Install (add section to config file) new OBJECT.


       -u     Uninstall (remove section from config file) existing OBJECT.


       -q     Query the config files  and  print  the  options  for  specified
              OBJECT.


       -j     Prints current configuration of unixODBC, listing (among others)
              the paths to the configuration files.


       -c     Calls SQLCreateDataSource


       -m     Calls SQLManageDataSources


       --version
              Prints program version and exits.


   OBJECTS
       -d     The ACTION affect drivers (and thus the odbcinst.ini  configura-
              tion file).


       -s     The  ACTION  affect  data  sources  (and thus the user or system
              odbc.ini configuration file).


   OPTIONS
       -f FILE
              The FILE is  template  file,  describing  the  configuration  of
              installed OBJECT (only valid for the -i ACTION).


       -r     Same  as the -f OPTION, only take the standard input as the tem-
              plate file.


       -n NAME
              Specifies the NAME of the OBJECT.


       -v     Turn off verbose mode. This turns off all  information,  warning
              and error messages.


       -l     The  specified  data  source is system-wide. Has any effect only
              with the -s OBJECT.


       -h     The specified data source is user-specific. Has any effect  only
              with the -s OBJECT.


RETURN VALUES
       This command returns zero on success and non-zero value on failure.

       /etc/odbinst.ini
              Configuration  file containing all the database drivers specifi-
              cations. See odbcinst.ini(5) for more details.
