mk-amd-map – create database maps for amd(8)



mk-amd-map [-p] mapname


The mk-amd-map utility creates the database maps used by the keyed map lookups in amd(8). It reads input from the named file and outputs them to a correspondingly named hashed database.

The -p option prints the map on standard output instead of generating a database. This is usually used to merge continuation lines into one physical line.

This philosophy, in the hands of amateurs, leads to inexplicably mind-numbing botches like the existence of two programs, “head” and “tail,” which print the first part or the last part of a file, depending. Even though their operations are duals of one another, “head” and “tail” are different programs, written by different authors, and take different options!
