Running BSQL and UTIL

The BSQL and UTIL programs, which form part of the Mimer SQL product, support a number of command-line arguments.

The overall syntax for BSQL and UTIL (expressed in UNIX-style) is as follows:

 bsql  [-m | -s] [database]
 util  [-m | -s] [database]

BSQL and UTIL Command-line Arguments

Connects to the database in multi-user mode.
Connects to the database in single-user mode.
Specifies the name of the database to access. If a database name is not specified, the default database will be accessed, see The Default Database.

If neither -s nor -m is specified for the optional mode flag, the way the database is accessed will be determined by the setting of the MIMER_MODE variable, see Specifying Single-user Mode Access, or, if this is not set, it will be accessed in multi-user mode.

UNIX: The UNIX-style command-line flags must be used on a UNIX machine.

VMS: Either the UNIX-style or the VMS-style command-line flags may be used on a VMS machine - see the Mimer SQL VMS Guide for more details.

Win: The UNIX-style command-line flags can be used from a Command Prompt window.
