accessdb(8)                   Manual pager utils                   accessdb(8)



NAME
       accessdb  -  dumps the content of a man-db database in a human readable
       format.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/accessdb [-hV] [<index-file>]

DESCRIPTION
       accessdb will output the data contained within a man-db database  in  a
       human   readable  form.   By  default,  it  will  dump  the  data  from
       /var/cache/man/index.<&lt;db-type>&gt;, where <db-type>  is  dependent  on  the
       database library in use.

       Supplying an argument to accessdb will override this default.
