NAME
       mkfmt - interactively generate format files

SYNOPSIS
       mkfmt database test_input

DESCRIPTION
       mkfmt will some day allow for interactive developement of format files.
       Its second parameter should be a sample input file. Currently it parses
       the format file an gives more meaningfull error messages if errors
       occur. Then the record-end-separator is used to cut the first documents
       from the sample input.

       Any help on this greatly appreciated.

               mkfmt FIELD_EXAMPLE/test FIELD_EXAMPLE/TEST

       database.fmt, test_input
