EDITMAP(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    EDITMAP(8)

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

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

       Editmap queries or edits	one record in 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.	They may be

       dbm    DBM format maps.	This requires the ndbm(3) library.

       btree  B-Tree format maps.  This	requires the new Berkeley DB library.

       hash   Hash format maps.	 This also requires the	Berkeley DB library.

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

       -C     Use the specified	sendmail configuration file for	looking	up the
	      TrustedUser option.

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

       -f     Normally	all  upper case	letters	in the key are folded to lower
	      case.  This flag disables	that behaviour.	 This is  intended  to
	      mesh  with  the -f flag in the K line in  The value
	      is never case folded.

       -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 er-
	      ror 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 fail-

       -x     Deletes the specific key from the	map.  Exits with 0 on  success
	      or EX_IOERR on failure.

	      sendmail(8), makemap(8)

       The editmap command has no history.
