ggzduedit — User management tool for the GGZ Gaming Zone server


ggzduedit [OPTION...]


The tool ggzduedit, which is an abbreviation of User Editor, provides access to the database of the GGZ server, ggzd. It can be used to view the list of currently registered users, as well as add new ones or delete some registrations. The options allow to pass the database connection options or file locations to ggzduedit, for example in the presence of multiple instances of the server. Usually however, the server database configuration can be read in by the tool from the file ggzd.conf, so no command line options are required.
