Description

System Administration Commands                                      editmap(8)



NAME
       editmap - query and edit single records in database maps for sendmail

SYNOPSIS
       editmap -C file [-N] [-f] [-q | -u | -x] maptype mapname key
            ["value"]...


DESCRIPTION
       The editmap command queries or edits one record in a database maps used
       by the keyed map lookups in sendmail(8). Arguments are  passed  on  the
       command line and output (for queries) is directed to standard output.


       Depending  on how it is compiled, editmap handles up to three different
       database formats, selected using the maptype parameter. See OPERANDS.


        If the TrustedUser option is set in the  sendmail  configuration  file
       and  editmap  is  invoked as root, the generated files are owned by the
       specified TrustedUser.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -C file    Use the specified sendmail configuration file (file) to look
                  up the TrustedUser option.


       -f         Disable  the folding of all upper case letters in the key to
                  lower case. Normally, all upper case letters in the key  are
                  folded  to  upper case. This is intended to mesh with the -f
                  flag in the K line  in sendmail.cf. The value is never  case
                  folded.


       -N          Include  the  null  byte that terminates strings in the map
                  (for alias maps).


       -q         Query the map for the specified key. If found,  print  value
                  to  standard output and exit with 0. If not found then print
                  an error message to stdout and exit with EX_UNAVAILABLE.


       -u         Update the record for key with value or inserts a new record
                  if one doesn't exist. Exits with 0 on success or EX_IOERR on
                  failure.


       -x          Delete the specific key from the map. Exit with 0  on  suc-
                  cess or EX_IOERR on failure.


OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       key         The left hand side of a record.

                   Each record is of the form:

                     key value


                   key and value are separated by white space.


       mapname     File name of the database map being created.


       maptype     Specifies the database format. The following maptype param-
                   eters are available:

                   dbm       Specifies DBM format maps.


                   btree     Specifies B-Tree format maps.


                   hash      Specifies hash format maps.



       value       The right hand side of a record.

                   Each record is of the form:

                     key value


                   key and value are separated by white space.
