Installation Notes for the Db Loader tool This version of Db Loader is being distributed as a source library with a set of example programs. To build Db Loader do the following: a. Unbundle this distribution using the following: zcat db-loader-vX.XXX-prod.tar.gz | tar -xf - This will create a directory named db-loader-vX.XXX-prod. Move into this directory. b. Check that there is a machine dependent makefile for your system in ./etc subdirectory. Build the Db Loader by typing: make c. The Db Loader binary will be created in directory db-loader-vX.X/bin. Scripts illustrating how the loader is used can be found in db-loader-vX.X/test. Try running db-loader-vX.X/test/Test-loader.csh. d. The command-line options for Db Loader can be displayed using the command, db-loader -h. Documentation for this application will be forthcoming shortly. NOTE: If you are working on SUN go to etc/make.platform.sunos5 and check compiler flags. You might need to change them depending on compiler version.
