NAME

dbadb - Manage the DB-ALLe database

SYNOPSIS

dbadb [command] [options] [args...]
 

DESCRIPTION

It allows to initialise the database, dump its contents and import and export data using BUFR, CREX or AOF encoding.
dbadb always requires a non-switch argument, that indicates what is the operation that should be performed:
help
 
Print a help summary.
help manpage
 
Print this manpage.
dump [options] [queryparm1=val1 [queryparm2=val2 [...]]]
 
Dump data from the database. Query parameters are the same of the Fortran API. Please see the section "Input and output parameters -- For data related action routines" of the Fortran API documentation for a complete list..
stations [options] [queryparm1=val1 [queryparm2=val2 [...]]]
 
List the stations present in the database. Query parameters are the same of the Fortran API. Please see the section "Input and output parameters -- For data related action routines" of the Fortran API documentation for a complete list..
wipe [options] [optional rep_memo description file]
 
Reinitialise the database, removing all data. Reinitialisation is done using the given report code description file. If no file is provided, a default version is used.
cleanup [options]
 
Perform database cleanup operations. The only operation currently performed by this command is deleting stations that have no values. If more will be added in the future, they will be documented here..
repinfo [options] [filename]
 
Update the report information table. Update the report information table with the data from the given report code description file. If no file is provided, a default version is used.
import [options] [filter] filename [filename [ ... ] ]
 
Import data into the database.
export [options] rep_memo [queryparm1=val1 [queryparm2=val2 [...]]]
 
Export data from the database. Query parameters are the same of the Fortran API. Please see the section "Input and output parameters -- For data related action routines" of the Fortran API documentation for a complete list..
delete [options] [queryparm1=val1 [queryparm2=val2 [...]]]
 
Delete all the data matching the given query parameters. Query parameters are the same of the Fortran API. Please see the section "Input and output parameters -- For data related action routines" of the Fortran API documentation for a complete list..
info

OPTIONS

dbadb follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-').

Options used to connect to the database

--dsn=url
alias of --url, used for historical compatibility
--url=url
DSN, or URL-like database definition, to use for connecting to the DB-All.e database (can also be specified in the environment as DBA_DB)
--wipe-first
wipe database before any other action

Options used to filter messages

--category=num
match messages with the given data category
--subcategory=num
match BUFR messages with the given data subcategory
--check-digit=num
match CREX messages with check digit (if 1) or without check digit (if 0)
--parsable
match only messages that can be parsed
--index=expr
match messages with the index in the given range (ex.: 1-5,9,22-30)

Option for command dump

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output

Option for command stations

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output

Option for command wipe

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output
--disappear
just remove the DB-All.e data and tables

Option for command cleanup

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output

Option for command repinfo

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output

Option for command import

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output
-t type, --type=type
format of the input data ('bufr', 'crex', 'aof', 'csv', 'json')
--rejected=fname
write unprocessed data to this file
-f, --overwrite
overwrite existing data
-r rep, --report=rep
force data to be of this type of report
--fast
Prefer speed to transactional integrity: if the import is interrupted, the database needs to be wiped and recreated.
--no-attrs
do not import data attributes
--full-pseudoana
merge pseudoana extra values with the ones already existing in the database
--precise
import messages using precise contexts instead of standard ones

Option for command export

-?, --help
print an help message
--verbose
verbose output
-r rep, --report=rep
force exported data to be of this type of report
-d type, --dest=type
format of the data in output ('bufr', 'crex', 'aof')
-t name, --template=name
template of the data in output (autoselect if not specified, 'list' gives a list)
--dump
dump data to be encoded instead of encoding it

Option for command delete

-?, --help
