|Command||tcl.update-md Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
|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".
