dbcheck - Verifies that a specfit database is in the correct format


dbcheck database


This is the name of the database file to be checked. The file is assumed to have a leading "sf" prefix and to reside in the current directory.


Dbcheck will check a database file to make sure that it is in a format readable by specfit. It will also check for any minor inconsistencies in the data such as a lower limit with a higher value than the actual parameter. Please note that the "sf" extension at the beginning of every specfit database file will be added by the program. It will also take file name expanders like asterisks. For example, typing "h*" for the database name will check all files in the current directory starting with "sfh".
