Creating the database\**

The user database is built from a text file using the makemap utility (in the distribution in the makemap subdirectory). The text file is a series of lines corresponding to userdb records; each line has a key and a value separated by white space. The key is always in the format described above -- for example:

This file is normally installed in a system directory; for example, it might be called /etc/userdb. To make the database version of the map, run the program:
makemap btree /etc/userdb.db < /etc/userdb
Then create a config file that uses this. For example, using the V8 M4 configuration, include the following line in your .mc file:
define(`confUSERDB_SPEC', /etc/userdb.db)
