SYNOPSISgcj-dbtool OPTION DBFILE [MORE] ...
gcj-dbtool [-0] [-] [-n] [-a] [-f]
[-t] [-l] [-p [LIBDIR]]
[-v] [-m] [--version] [--help]
"gcj-dbtool" is a tool for creating and manipulating class file mapping
databases. "libgcj" can use these databases to find a shared library
corresponding to the bytecode representation of a class. This func‐
tionality is useful for ahead-of-time compilation of a program that has
no knowledge of "gcj".
"gcj-dbtool" works best if all the jar files added to it are compiled
Note that "gcj-dbtool" is currently available as "preview technology".
We believe it is a reasonable way to allow application-transparent
ahead-of-time compilation, but this is an unexplored area. We welcome
OPTIONS-n DBFILE [SIZE]
This creates a new database. Currently, databases cannot be
resized; you can choose a larger initial size if desired. The
default size is 32,749.
-a DBFILE JARFILE LIB
-f DBFILE JARFILE LIB
This adds a jar file to the database. For each class file in the
jar, a cryptographic signature of the bytecode representation of
the class is recorded in the database. At runtime, a class is
looked up by its signature and the compiled form of the class is
looked for in the corresponding shared library. The -a option will
verify that LIB exists before adding it to the database; -f skips
[-][-0] -m DBFILE DBFILE,[DBFILE]
Merge a number of databases. The output database overwrites any
existing database. To add databases into an existing database,
include the destination in the list of sources.
If - or -0 are used, the list of files to read is taken from stan‐
dard input instead of the command line. For -0, Input filenames
are terminated by a null character instead of by whitespace. Use‐
ful when arguments might contain white space. The GNU find -print0
option produces input suitable for this mode.
Test a database.
List the contents of a database.
-p Print the name of the default database. If there is no default
database, this prints a blank line. If LIBDIR is specified, use it
instead of the default library directory component of the database
Print a help message, then exit.
-v Print version information, then exit.
