mkcat(8)		GNATS Admininstration Utilities		      mkcat(8)

NAME
       mkcat - create a	new GNATS category

SYNOPSIS
       mkcat  [	-d databasename	| --database=databasename ]
	      [	-h | --help ]

DESCRIPTION
       Scans  the database for any new categories, creating new	subdirectories
       in the database directory if any	are found.

       This program is mostly obsolete since directories  for  categories  are
       automatically created as	necessary, but is left for histerical reasons.

       mkcat should be run by the GNATS	user (by default gnats).

OPTIONS
       -d, --database
	      Specifies	 the  database to be scanned for new categories; if no
	      database is specified, the database named	 default  is  assumed.
	      This  option overrides the database specified in the GNATSDB en-
	      vironment	variable.

       -h, --help
	      Displays a short usage message.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The GNATSDB environment variable	is used	to determine which database to
       use.  For a local database, it contains the name	of the database	to ac-
       cess.  If GNATSDB is not	set, the database named	default	is used.
