Any number of coverage databases may be specified on the command line. These databases will be merged and the reports will be based on the merged information. If no databases are specified the default database (cover_db) will be used.
The -write option will write out the merged database. If no name is given for the new database, the first database read in will be overwritten. When this option is used no reports are generated by default.
