MDB_LOAD(1)		    General Commands Manual		   MDB_LOAD(1)

NAME
       mdb_load	- LMDB environment import tool

SYNOPSIS
       mdb_load	[-V] [-f file] [-n] [-s	subdb] [-N] [-T]  envpath

DESCRIPTION
       The  mdb_load  utility  reads from the standard input and loads it into
       the LMDB	environment envpath.

       The input to mdb_load must be in	the output  format  specified  by  the
       mdb_dump(1) utility or as specified by the -T option below.

OPTIONS
       -V     Write  the  library  version  number to the standard output, and
	      exit.

       -f file
	      Read from	the specified file instead of from the standard	input.

       -n     Load an LMDB database which does not use subdirectories.

       -s subdb
	      Load a specific subdatabase. If no database is  specified,  data
	      is loaded	into the main database.

       -N     Don't  overwrite	existing  records when loading into an already
	      existing database; just skip them.

       -T     Load data	from simple text files.	The input must be paired lines
	      of  text,	 where the first line of the pair is the key item, and
	      the second line of the pair is its corresponding data item.

	      A	simple escape mechanism, where newline and backslash (\) char-
	      acters  are special, is applied to the text input. Newline char-
	      acters are interpreted as	record separators.  Backslash  charac-
	      ters  in the text	will be	interpreted in one of two ways:	If the
	      backslash	character precedes another  backslash  character,  the
	      pair  will  be  interpreted as a literal backslash. If the back-
	      slash character precedes any other character, the	two characters
	      following	 the  backslash	 will  be interpreted as a hexadecimal
	      specification of a single	character; for example,	\0a is a  new-
	      line character in	the ASCII character set.

	      For  this	reason,	any backslash or newline characters that natu-
	      rally occur in the text input must be escaped to avoid misinter-
	      pretation	by mdb_load.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Exit  status  is	 zero if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero
       exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
