NAME
       odbcinst	- An unixODBC tool for manipulating configuration files

SYNOPSIS
       odbcinst	ACTION OBJECT OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION
       odbcinst	 is  a	command	 line tool which has been created for allowing
       people who are developing the install scripts/RPMs for  Drivers	to  be
       able to easily create/remove entries in odbc.ini	and odbcinst.ini. This
       command line tool is a complement to the	shared	library	 of  the  same
       name (libodbcinst.so). This tool	is a part of the odbcinst component of
       unixODBC.

OPTIONS
   ACTIONS
       -i     Install (add section to config file) new OBJECT.

       -u     Uninstall	(remove	section	from config file) existing OBJECT.

       -q     Query the	config files and print the options for	specified  OB-
	      JECT.

       -j     Prints current configuration of unixODBC,	listing	(among others)
	      the paths	to the configuration files.

       -c     Calls SQLCreateDataSource

       -m     Calls SQLManageDataSources

       --version
	      Prints program version and exits.

   OBJECTS
       -d     The ACTION affect	drivers	(and thus the odbcinst.ini  configura-
	      tion file).

       -s     The  ACTION  affect  data	 sources  (and thus the	user or	system
	      odbc.ini configuration file).

   OPTIONS
       -f FILE
	      The FILE is template file, describing the	configuration  of  in-
	      stalled OBJECT (only valid for the -i ACTION).

	      plate file.

       -n NAME
	      Specifies	the NAME of the	OBJECT.

	      and error	messages.

       -l     The  specified  data  source is system-wide. Has any effect only
	      with the -s OBJECT.

       -h     The specified data source	is user-specific. Has any effect  only
	      with the -s OBJECT.

RETURN VALUES
