# Hatchet README for hatchvert
# v 0.8, 2005.05.12

The hatchvert utility has been created to allow users to migrate their existing
hatchet pflog.db file from an earlier data format to the newer, UTC-based db format. This conversion is only neceessary if you have a database file Hatchet version 0.7 or older. Chances are you don't. :)

This format change was necessary to overcome the typelessness native to the sqlite database. Without this, it becomes impossible to accurately sort log entries by date.

The hatchvert utility also provides a means for deleting unused "freespace" in the
sqlite database, as described here:

Usage: hatchvert [clean|convert]

  • clean - Rebuild db, removing sqlite free space
  • convert - Rebuild db, converting old date format to UTC
