OPENDB(nged)		     BRL-CAD User Commands		  OPENDB(nged)

NAME
       opendb -	Closes the current database file and opens database.g.

SYNOPSIS
       opendb [-f] [database.g]

DESCRIPTION
       Closes the current database file	and opens database.g. If database.g is
       not found, the current database is left open. If
	database.g is not specified on the command line, the name of the
       current database	file is	returned.

       If the -f option	is specified and the database.g	is a v4	geometry
       database, the file will be read with a flipped binary endianness
       encoding. This is useful	for binary-incompatible	v4 geometry files that
       were created on a different platform type.

       Binary-incompatible v4 geometry database	files that can be
       auto-detected will be automatically converted if	all resulting matrices
       are valid.

EXAMPLES
       The first example shows the use of the opendb command to	close the
       current database	file and open the one specified. The second example
       shows the use of	the command with no database name, which returns the
       name of the current database file.

       Example 1. Close	the current database and open another one.

       mged>opendb model.g

       Closes the current database file	and opens model.g.

       Example 2. Return the name of the current database file.

       mged>opendb

       Returns the name	of the current database	file.

       Example 3. Open and upgrade a binary-incompatible v4 file.

       mged>opendb -f model.g mged>dbupgrade

       Closes any currently open database and opens model.g as a
       binary-incompatible v4 geometry database.
