NAME

packdbf - Rebuild DBF files, removing deleted rows

SYNOPSIS

 packdbf [options] [file ...]

 Options:
   -h --help             verbose help message
   -o --outfile=<file>   write output to <file> (overrides -x)
   -x --outprefix=<pre>  use <pre> as output prefix

 Defaults:
   -o out_<infile>
   -x out_

DESCRIPTION

One or more files specified on the command line are read in and written back out, rebuilding the header from scratch and removing rows flags for deletion. Output is typically specified with the -o flag, but lacking that, it is written to out_$infile, given input $infile. The output prefix can be changed with the --outprefix parameter.

The output or input can be - specifying STDIN or STDOUT, but this is fragile and likely will only work for reading.
