SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/accessdb [-hV] [<index-file>]

DESCRIPTION

accessdb will output the data contained within a man-db database in a human readable form. By default, it will dump the data from /var/cache/man/index.<db-type>, where <db-type> is dependent on the database library in use.

Supplying an argument to accessdb will override this default.
