Some utilities cannot be run from the Linux command line. They must be run from DBW or an equivalent tool, such as cnsterm or cnstool.
To start a utility from the Linux command line:
- If not already done, set up the Teradata Database environment by typing:
at the Linux command line.
- On the command line type:
utilityname [ options ]
where utilityname is the name of the utility, and options can include any of the available command-line options and arguments of that utility.
Unicode support on the Linux command line requires a locale that supports UTF8 encoding. The output display screen must use a font that supports the required Unicode glyphs. For example, the following command sets an xterm window to use a common font that supports all Unicode glyphs:
xterm -fn '-efont-fixed-*-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1'
