Correct, you don't need to do both, just doing "newaliases"
is enough. Oh, didn't I mention it in the highlights ?
Actually it is not new, but usually the databases are not
in binary form for which there is a reliable reconstruction
mechanism, or they are edited in-place, which is rather
To have it working, one MUST NOT copy/write over the existing
database file(s), the new data must be MOVED into place;
specifically if it is coming from other disk partion, it must
be moved thru a temporary file:
mv /other/partition/routes.db MAILVAR/db/routes-new.db
mv MAILVAR/db/routes-new.db MAILVAR/db/routes.db
(Though your encounters with "[ file1 -nt file2 ]" expressions
call for carefull script rewrite -- or perhaps I just have to
add short-circuiting into the test facility.
Umm... No short-circuiting in POSIX 1003.2 'test'..)
