The basic procedure would be this:
Create the standard offline directory "offline" in the catalog directory.
Link in your text files to that directory:
ln ../products/*.txt ../products/*.asc ../products/*.csv .
/usr/local/minivend/bin/offline -c CATALOGNAME
When it completes, stop Minivend/Interchange, move the GDBM files
to the products directory, then restart:
mv -f *.gdbm ../products
That is what I would do.
