db truncate


db truncate
	[-txn txnid]


Empties the database, discarding all records it contains.

The options are as follows:

Enclose the call within a transaction. If the call succeeds, changes made by the operation will be recoverable. If the call fails, the operation will have made no changes.

-txn txnid
If the operation is to be transaction-protected (other than by specifying the -auto_commit flag), the txnid parameter is a transaction handle returned from env txn.

The db truncate command returns the number of records discarded from the database on success.

In the case of error, a Tcl error is thrown.
