2.4 zdbr

zdbr is used to remove records from a database. The records to be removed are specified by their keys and are entered via stdin or, optionally, they are read from a text file. If many records are removed from the database, some fragmentation can occur. In this case, it is advisable to reorganize the database, which is possible via the --reorganize option.

In addition to the database file to be used and the common options, the zdbf command accepts the following options:

-i, --input=FILE

Read queries from a file instead of from stdin.

-r, --reorganize

Reorganize the database.

-s, --sync

Automatically synchronize all database operations to the disk.
