Name

FileDatabase — specify table and column to look up in search for file contents

SYNOPSIS

table_name [:column_name]

DESCRIPTION

Besides retrieving file contents from files on the filesystem (as usual), Interchange has the ability to retrieve file contents from the database.

The standard FileDatabase setting includes the appropriate table and column names.

In case the column is unspecified, it defaults to the current value of global variable LANG. In case the column named after LANG value does not exist, Interchange finally tries with the column default.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE
