Subject Re: [firebird-support] RE: gfix silent after executing command

Depends whether you're used to Unix commands, which typically say nothing when they've done what they think you meant (thus not giving you a clue whether what they did was what you actually wanted or not), or commands on pretty well all other systems which are more likely to confirm what it is they've actually done (so that you can see whether or not it was what you wanted).

One would, however, expect a command which followed the Unix convention (to say nothing at all on success) to have a "verbose" flag which did cause a suitable success message to be produced.

That's a problem with GFIX. If everything is ok then it says .... nothing.

Hi guys,

I have this strange problem which I do not get it. I am trying to check my database with given options:

gfix -user SYSDBA -password masterkey -v MYBASE.FDB

and.. nothing, no return info. Nothing.

When I intentionally give non existant file, like this:

gfix -user SYSDBA -password masterkey -v blabla.FDB

then I am getting info about error.

What am I doing wrong?
