EDITMAP(8)               BSD System Manager's Manual                EDITMAP(8)


     editmap - query and edit records in database maps for sendmail


     editmap [-C file] [-N] [-f] [-q | -u | -x] maptype mapname key
             ["value ..."]


     editmap queries or edits one record in database maps used by the keyed
     map lookups in sendmail(8). Arguments are passed on the command line and
     output (for queries) is directed to standard output.

     Depending on how it is compiled, editmap handles up to three different
     database formats, selected using the maptype parameter. They may be

     dbm         DBM format maps. This requires the ndbm(3) library.

     btree       B-Tree format maps. This requires the new Berkeley DB li-

     hash        Hash format maps. This also requires the Berkeley DB library.

     If the TrustedUser option is set in the sendmail configuration file and
     editmap is invoked as root, the generated files will be owned by the
     specified TrustedUser.


     -C file     Use the specified sendmail(8) configuration file for looking
                 up the TrustedUser option.

     -N          Include the null byte that terminates strings in the map (for
                 alias maps).

     -f          Normally all upper case letters in the key are folded to
                 lower case. This flag disables that behaviour. This is in-
                 tended to mesh with the -f flag in the "K" line in
                 sendmail.cf. The value is never case folded.

     -q          Query the map for the specified key. If found, print value to
                 standard output and exit with 0. If not found then print an
                 error message to stdout and exit with EX_UNAVAILABLE.

     -u          Updates the record for key with value or inserts a new record
                 if one doesn't exist. Exits with 0 on success or EX_IOERR on

     -x          Deletes the specific key from the map. Exits with 0 on suc-
                 cess or EX_IOERR on failure.


     makemap(8), sendmail(8)


     The editmap command appeared in OpenBSD 3.0.
