        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.<db-type>, where <db-type>  is  dependent  on  the
        database library in use.
 
        Supplying an argument to accessdb will override this default.
