This application can also import data from \s-1CSV\s0 files, spreadsheets (\fB.ods\fR or \fB.xls\fR), \s-1SQL \s0(only MySQL supported) or \&\fB.tex\fR files that define problems using the \fBprobsoln\fR package. The use of this application as a helper for the \fBdatatool\fR package can significantly speed document build time. .PP The \fBdatatooltk\fR application can be run in either batch mode or \s-1GUI\s0 mode. .SH "OPTIONS" .IX Header "OPTIONS" Some of the options may have the default settings change through the \&\s-1GUI\s0 interface. You can't combine any of the load/import options: \&\fB\-\-in\fR, \fB\-\-csv\fR, \fB\-\-xls\fR, \fB\-\-ods\fR, \fB\-\-sql\fR, \fB\-\-probsoln\fR. You also can't combine any of the merge options: \fB\-\-merge\fR, \&\fB\-\-merge\-csv\fR, \fB\-\-merge\-xls\fR, \fB\-\-merge\-ods\fR, \fB\-\-merge\-sql\fR, \&\fB\-\-merge\-probsoln\fR. The merge import options use the same settings as the import options. See the \fBdatatooltk\fR user manual for further details. .IP "\fB\-\-gui\fR (or \fB\-g\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--gui (or -g)" Invoke \fBdatatooltk\fR in \s-1GUI\s0 mode. The command line invocation .Sp \&\fBdatatooltk-gui\fR [\fIoption\fR]+ .Sp is equivalent to .Sp \&\fBdatatooltk\fR \fB\-\-gui\fR [\fIoption\fR]+ .Sp but additionally has a splash screen. .IP "\fB\-\-batch\fR (or \fB\-b\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--batch (or -b)" Invoke \fBdatatooltk\fR in batch mode. .IP "\fB\-\-output\fR \fIfilename\fR (or \fB\-o\fR \fIfilename\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--output filename (or -o filename)" Save the database to \fIfilename\fR (batch mode only). .IP "\fB\-\-in\fR \fIfilename\fR (or \fB\-i\fR \fIfilename\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--in filename (or -i filename)" Load \fIfilename\fR which must be a file that can be loaded in a document using \fB\einput\fR or \fB\eDTLloaddbtex\fR. .IP "\fB\-\-tex\-encoding\fR \fIencoding\fR" 4 .IX Item "--tex-encoding encoding" Set the encoding for the TeX (\fB.tex\fR and \fB.dbtex\fR) files to \&\fIencoding\fR. The \fIencoding\fR may be the keyword \fBdefault\fR or an empty string to indicate the default file encoding (as understood by the Java Virtual Machine). Make sure that your LaTeX document matches the given encoding. .IP "\fB\-\-name\fR \fIname\fR" 4 .IX Item "--name name" If used with \fB\-\-in\fR, \fB\-\-csv\fR, \fB\-\-sql\fR, \fB\-\-xls\fR, \fB\-\-ods\fR or \fB\-\-probsoln\fR this sets the database label to \fIname\fR. .IP "\fB\-\-version\fR (or \fB\-v\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--version (or -v)" Print the version details to \s-1STDOUT\s0 and exit. .IP "\fB\-\-help\fR (or \fB\-h\fR)" 4 .IX Item "--help (or -h)" Print a brief summary of available options to \s-1STDOUT\s0 and exit. .IP "\fB\-\-debug\fR" 4 .IX Item "--debug" Enable debug mode. .IP "\fB\-\-nodebug\fR" 4 .IX Item "--nodebug" Disable debug mode. .IP "\fB\-\-compat\fR \fIlevel\fR" 4 .IX Item "--compat level" Set the compatibility level.

(Always performed after \fB\-\-sort\fR regardless of the option order.) .IP "\fB\-\-noshuffle\fR" 4 .IX Item "--noshuffle" Don't shuffle the database. .IP "\fB\-\-sort\fR [\fIprefix\fR]\fIfield\fR" 4 .IX Item "--sort [prefix]field" Sort the database according to the column whose label is \fIfield\fR. Optionally, \fIprefix\fR may be \fB+\fR (ascending order) or \fB\-\fR (descending order). If \fIprefix\fR is omitted, ascending is assumed. .IP "\fB\-\-sort\-locale\fR \fIvalue\fR" 4 .IX Item "--sort-locale value" If the \fIvalue\fR is \fBnone\fR then use letter-sorting for strings. (That is, compare the Unicode values for each character.) Otherwise \&\fIvalue\fR should be a valid \s-1IETF\s0 language tag that identifies the locale to sort by. .IP "\fB\-\-sort\-case\-sensitive\fR" 4 .IX Item "--sort-case-sensitive" Use case-sensitive comparison when letter-sorting strings. (Ignored with locale-sensitive comparisons.) .IP "\fB\-\-sort\-case\-insensitive\fR" 4 .IX Item "--sort-case-insensitive" Use case-insensitive comparison when letter-sorting strings. (Ignored with locale-sensitive comparisons.) .IP "\fB\-\-truncate\fR \fIn\fR" 4 .IX Item "--truncate n" Truncate the database to the first \fIn\fR rows. Truncation is always performed last (after any sorting, shuffling and filtering). .IP "\fB\-\-filter\fR \fIkey\fR \fIoperator\fR \fIvalue\fR" 4 .IX Item "--filter key operator value" Adds the given filter. This filter returns true if the value in the column whose label is given by \fIkey\fR matches the operation \&\fIoperator\fR \fIvalue\fR where \fIoperator\fR may be one of: \fBeq\fR (equals), \&\fBne\fR (does not equal), \fBle\fR (less than or equal to), \fBlt\fR (less than), \fBge\fR (greater than or equal to), \fBgt\fR (greater than) or \&\fBregex\fR (matches the regular expression given by \fIvalue\fR). .Sp Filtering is always performed after sorting and shuffling (when those actions are specified). Numerical comparisons are used for columns identified as containing numerical data otherwise string comparisons are used, except in the case of \fBregex\fR where the data type is disregarded and all values are assumed to be strings. .Sp This option may be used multiple times. .IP "\fB\-\-filter\-or\fR" 4 .IX Item "--filter-or" Use \s-1OR\s0 operator when filtering. (Has no effect with only one instance of \fB\-\-filter\fR.) .IP "\fB\-\-filter\-and\fR" 4 .IX Item "--filter-and" Use \s-1AND\s0 operator when filtering. (Has no effect with only one instance of \fB\-\-filter\fR.) .IP "\fB\-\-filter\-include\fR" 4 .IX Item "--filter-include" When filtering, only retain rows that match the filter. Non-matching rows are discarded. .IP "\fB\-\-filter\-exclude\fR" 4 .IX Item "--filter-exclude" When filtering, only retain rows that don't match the filter. Matching rows are discarded. .IP "\fB\-\-merge\fR \fIkey\fR \fIdb file\fR" 4 .IX Item "--merge key db file" Merges the input or imported database with the database stored in the given \fBdb file\fR. Each row in \fBdb file\fR is merged with the row that has a matching value in the column whose label is given by \&\fIkey\fR. Both databases must contain a column with that label. If both databases share additional columns, the values in \fIdb file\fR override those in the original database. This options is always implemented before any sorting, shuffling, filtering or truncating. Only one of the merge options is permitted. .IP "\fB\-\-csv\fR \fIcsv file\fR" 4 .IX Item "--csv csv file" Import data from the given \s-1CSV\s0 file. .IP "\fB\-\-merge\-csv\fR \fIkey\fR \fIcsv file\fR" 4 .IX Item "--merge-csv key csv file" As \fB\-\-merge\fR but the data to be merged is imported from the given \&\s-1CSV\s0 file. .IP "\fB\-\-csv\-sep\fR \fIcharacter\fR" 4 .IX Item "--csv-sep character" Specify the character used to separate values in the \s-1CSV\s0 file. .IP "\fB\-\-csv\-delim\fR \fIcharacter\fR" 4 .IX Item "--csv-delim character" Specify the character used to delimit values in the \s-1CSV\s0 file. .IP "\fB\-\-csv\-skiplines\fR \fIn\fR" 4 .IX Item "--csv-skiplines n" Skip the first \fIn\fR rows from the start of the \s-1CSV\s0 file.
