Appendix D. A DB-TO-FILE UTILITY

This appendix describes tbl2filed, a daemon that allows you to use SQL to read and write values in Linux configuration files as if those values were in a database instead of a file. This utility is convenient if you want to use RTA for new daemons and want to keep the same database metaphor for reading and writing values into traditional, non-RTA configuration files. Topics discussed in this appendix include:

  • Overview

  • Table definitions

  • Usage and API

  • Security notes
