MGED CMD dup


dup

Syntax

dup file [prefix]


Argument(s)

file
File to be checked against the current database
Prefix
Optional. Prefix to be prepended to each object name.


Return Value(s)

No Return Values for this command.


Description

The "dup" command checks the specified file (which is expected to contain a BRL-CAD model) for names that are the same as those in the current model. If a prefix is included on the command line, all names in the specified file will have that prefix added to their names before comparison with the current model. This command is often used prior to invoking the dbconcat command to ensure that there are no name clashes.


Example(s)

mged> dup other_model.g abc
Do the same check as above, but prefix all the names in other_model.g with abc before comparing with the names in the current model
