Description

No options

If no options are used, only the names of the disk files created by the software are displayed.

+v [-h]

+v displays all objects in the application database that have corresponding disk files. -h (used with +v) suppresses headings for the columns of information being displayed.

+a [-h]

+a displays all objects in the application database regardless of whether they have corresponding disk files. -h (used with +a) suppresses the display of headings for the columns of information being displayed.

+f [+s]

+f displays a list of all defined fields in the application database. The fields are displayed under headings that correspond to the field names in the Fields EntitySet. An additional heading, SFN, provides the index number for indexed fields (used in conjunction with the Programming Language Interface). +s displays system-defined objects as well as user-defined objects.

+p [+s]

+p displays the permissions for objects in the application database. (This option is available only to the superuser.) +s (used with +p) displays system-defined objects in addition to user-defined objects, and displays the database encryption key.

+u [+s=delimiter]

+u displays list of the users defined in the Users EntitySet in the application database. (This option is available only to the superuser.) The +s=delimiter option prints all user information separated by the indicated delimiter, where delimiter is a single character.

+i

+i displays the system numbers for all objects in the ZIM directory. The limit is 65 000 create functions in a ZIM directory. Use the +i switch to determine how close to the limit you are.

Comments

If an application program has been compiled, its name has a -c suffix in the ZIMFILES listing.

To use the graphical version, activate the Administrative Utilities icon in the Zim program group. When the window containing the utilities opens, activate the Object Browser icon and complete the dialog box appropriately.
