dbcolrename: change the names of columns in a fsdb schema

NAME

dbcolrename - change the names of columns in a fsdb schema

SYNOPSIS

dbcolrename OldName1 NewName1 [OldName2 NewName2] ...

DESCRIPTION

Dbcolrename changes the names of columns in a fsdb schema, mapping OldName1 to NewName1, and so on for multiple pairs of column names.

Note that it is valid to do ``overlapping'' renames like "dbcolrename a b b a".

OPTIONS

No non-standard options.

This module also supports the standard fsdb options:

-d
Enable debugging output.
-i or --input InputSource
Read from InputSource, typically a file name, or "-" for standard input, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
-o or --output OutputDestination
Write to OutputDestination, typically a file name, or "-" for standard output, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.
--autorun or --noautorun
By default, programs process automatically, but Fsdb::Filter objects in Perl do not run until you invoke the run() method. The "--(no)autorun" option controls that behavior within Perl.
--help
Show help.
--man
Show full manual.

    #fsdb account passwd uid gid fullname homedir shell
