Unpack the cdb package:
gunzip cdb-0.75.tar tar -xf cdb-0.75.tar cd cdb-0.75
Compile the cdb programs:
As root, install the cdb programs under /usr/local:
make setup check
make rts ./rts > rts.out cmp rts.out rts.expNormally this prints nothing.
Beware that, starting with version 0.75, rts takes some time to run: e.g., 155 seconds on a Pentium II-350. (It writes three 4GB databases to /dev/null.)
./cdbmake-sv test.cdb test.tmp < /etc/servicesUse cdbtest to test the database:
./cdbtest < test.cdbThe bad length and not found tallies should be 0. The different record tally should be 0 unless you have the same service listed on several lines in /etc/services.
Try retrieving particular records from the database:
./cdbget smtp/tcp < test.cdb && echo '' ./cdbget @25/tcp < test.cdb && echo ''Try printing some database statistics:
./cdbstats < test.cdbThe numbers should decrease rapidly past d0.
To report success:
( echo 'First M. Last'; cat `cat SYSDEPS` ) \ | mail firstname.lastname@example.orgReplace First M. Last with your name.
