Command tcl.update-md Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category TCL (746)
Description updates the verbs and related items in a given account md, using the "newac" file on the "dm" account as the base standard for determining what should be there. It must be run from the "dm" account.

"update-md" checks for illegal verb definitions and converts "old" catalog pointer items to AP format.

An "active list" (consisting of account names) may be used prior to running "update-md" to update several accounts at once.

If no account name is specified, and no list is active, the system requests the account name.

The process prompts with the following messages:

Create user id from each account name (y, <n>)?

This prompt allows the automatic creation of user-ids corresponding to any account updated. Valid responses are "y", "n", or "<return>", which defaults to "n".

Enter md file name:

This is where the "new" account name is entered. Entering a <return> at this prompt terminates the process.

"update-account" and "update-accounts" are synonyms of "update-md".
