SYNOPSIS

ace [options] [URL]

DESCRIPTION

AcePerl is an object-oriented Perl interface for the AceDB database. It provides functionality for connecting to remote AceDB databases, performing queries, fetching ACE objects, and updating databases. The programmer's API is compatible with the JADE Java API, and interoperable with the API used by BoulderIO.

OPTIONS

-host <hostname>

Server host (localhost)

-port <port>

Server port (200005)

-path <db path>

Local database path (no default)

-url

-login <user>

Username

-pass <pass>

Password

-tcsh

Use T-shell completion mode

-save

Save database updates automatically

-exec <command>

Run a command and quit

Respects the environment variables $ACEDB_HOST and $ACEDB_PORT, if present. You can edit the command line using the cursor keys and emacs style key bindings. Use up and down arrows (or ^P, ^N) to access the history. The tab key completes partial commands. In tcsh mode, the tab key cycles among the completions, otherwise pressing the tab key a second time lists all the possibilities.

You may use multiple -exec switches to run a sequence of commands, or separate multiple commands in a single string by semicolons:

  • ace.pl -e 'find Author Thierry-Mieg*' -e 'show' ace.pl -e 'find Author Thierry-Mieg*; show'
