cdbdiff - program to operate cookie (fortune) database


cdbdiff [options] <database1> <database2> <resultfile>


This manual page documents briefly the cdbdiff command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has some plaintext documentation, see below. cdbdiff is a program that compares two cookie databases and builds a list of those cookies that are only present in second, but not in the first of them. The input files are not modified in any way.


A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/cookietool directory [nothing] Shows summary of options. -c case sensitive comparisons. -d[0-3] how fussy about word delimiters? (default: 2) -f[0-3] input file format - -f3: cookies are separated by '%%' lines; -f2: cookies are sep‐ arated by '%' lines (DEFAULT); -f1: each line is a cookie; -f0: each word is a cookie. -a append if <resultfile> exists (instead of failing).
