    convert-database is a simple python script to convert a database from one format to another. It could also be used to rebuild a database of the same format, if you're encountering datbase errors.

    Usage is like:

    Usage: ./convert-database -i input_database -o output_database -t
    Input database format is automatically detected
    -t must specify dbhash, gdbm, dbm, dumbdbm or anydbm
    dbhash is part of the Berkely DB library
    gdbm is the GNU database format
    dbm is the traditional *ix ndbm format
    dumbdbm is a fallback, safe but slow format
    anydbm will pick a database format for you
