NAME
     kvm_mkdb — create kernel database

SYNOPSIS
     kvm_mkdb [file]

DESCRIPTION
     Kvm_mkdb creates a database in /var/db containing information about the
     specified file.  If no file is specified, /vmunix is used by default.
     The file is named ``kvm_filename.db'', where ``filename'' is the name of
     the file read.  Various library routines consult this database.  The only
     information currently stored is the kernel namelist, which is used by the
     kvm_nlist(3) function, however, in the future the database may contain
     other static information about the current system.

FILES
     /vmunix
     /var/db/kvm_vmunix.db

SEE ALSO
