Next: xqtime Up: Using Qtime Previous: Using Qtime


Before using xqtime, you first need to setup your Qtime database using the newqtime command.

At your command prompt, enter newqtime RelationName where RelationName is the name of your new Qtime database name. A new directory named RelationName will be created beneath your current directory. Alternatively, you can specify a full path for your new database. A common approach is to store all your databases in a common location. For example, suppose you like to keep all your databases in /usr/local/databases. If you wanted to create a new ``MyProjects'' Qtime database, you would enter the command shown in figure 3.1.

Figure 3.1: Running newqtime

If you run newqtime without any arguments, newqtime will create a relation named Qtime-db in your current directory.

Once you've created your database using newqtime, you can add, modify, import/export, delete entries from this database using the xqtime program.
