qddbscript - Generate and compile QddbScript files


qddbscript autogen <relation_dir> ?output_file? qddbscript compile ?-compat? <relation_dir> ?output_file? qddbscript compile ?-compat? ?<script_file>? ?<output_file>?


qddbscript can automatically generate QddbScript (autogen option) and compile existing QddbScript files into a selfcontained Fx-based application (qddbscript compile).

By default, qddbscript manipulates a file located in the relation directory called QddbScript. If this file exists, nxqddb(1) will notice it and display the screen based on it's contents. You can optionally specify a full path to a script, however, certain options require knowledge of the relation's Schema (in particular, autoalign).

If you do not specify an output file, qddbscript compile will create a file called QddbScript.tcl in the relation directory. qddbscript autogen creates a file called Qddb_Script in the relation directory.

See qddb_script(n) for QddbScript syntax.
