 NAME
        scorchdb - light weight flat file text database

        scorchdb [--file <filename>] [--list] [--full] [--strict] [-<column name>]* <str>* [+<column name> <str>]

        --file <file>   Specify a file name to use
                        The default is wphosts

        --FS <char>     Specify a different field separator character
                        The default is " "

EXAMPLES
        scorchdb -ip -server

        Will display the columns labelled l a and i from a file named host
        This might be the ip address, long name and alias to make a hosts file


        scorchdb --file testdb

        Will list the available column searches in the testdb file


        scorchdb +os windows

        Display all columns where the os column contains the word windows

The idea behind this is that you can set up a file as a column driven data source and the code will use labels in the file to work out the rest. If no data labels are found then numerical labels will be used.
 
It is possible to define the column names using "#DEF" at the start of the column list and "#FS" to define the field separator.
