berkdb dbtruncate


berkdb dbtruncate
	[-env env]


Truncates the Berkeley DB database specified by the database name file and [database] name arguments. If no database is specified, the physical file represented by file is emptied, incidentally removing all databases that it contained.

The options are as follows:

-env env
If a -env argument is given, the database in the specified Berkeley DB environment is removed.

Mark the end of the command arguments.

The berkdb dbtruncate command returns the number of records discarded from the database on success. If an error occurs, a Berkeley DB error message is returned or a Tcl error is thrown.
