Subject GFIX syntax question - what am I doing wrong?
Author Michael Badnarik
I have a very important database that suddenly got corrupted. I'm
trying to clean it up using GFIX, but the best I can do is generate
an "unavailable database" message. Most of the time it
says "incompatible switch combination - please retry specifying an
option - plausible options are:"

I am using the OPEN CONTACTS application locally on my laptop. I know
that firebird is installed, but I'm not sure how or if it is involved.
I suspect that I need to start Firebird as a service before my GFIX
commands will work, but I'm not sure about that.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
