Running Mimer BSQL
The Mimer BSQL program supports a number of command-line arguments.
The syntax for Mimer BSQL (expressed in UNIX-style) is as follows:bsql [-u[username]] [-p[password]] [-s|-m] [-qquery] [database]
BSQL Command-line Arguments
Ident name to be used in connect. If only -u is given an attempt to connect as OS_USER is done. If the -u switch is not given the user is prompted for a username. Password for ident. If the switch is omitted the user is prompted for a password. When connecting as OS_USER, enter the -p switch only, without specifying password. Connects to the database in multi-user mode. Connects to the database in single-user mode. query can be any BSQL command or SQL statement. If a query is supplied, BSQL will terminate immediately after the query has been processed. 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.
Arguments containing more than one word should be enclosed in ". Note that VMS translates arguments to lower case when UNIX-style syntax is used.
