Recovery command

The Indexed File Recovery (recover1) utility is executed by issuing the following command:

recover1 indexed-file drop-file [options] ...
The filename of the indexed file to be recovered. The name is not resolved through any environment variables.
The name of the file where recover1 places any unrecoverable records found in the indexed file, as discussed in Recovery process description. If drop-file specifies an environment variable name, the environment variable value will be resolved before opening the dropped record file.
Zero or more command line options, as described in Recovery command options. Options are specified with letters that must be preceded with a hyphen (-) or a slash (/). Option letters may be specified in uppercase or lowercase. Certain option letters allow an optional pathname as part of the option format. The presence or absence of the pathname is determined by whether or not the next non-white space character following the option letter is a hyphen or slash, whichever one was used preceding the option letter.
Note: The option introducer character slash is supported for Windows compatibility and should not be used on UNIX, where it can be confused with an absolute pathname; that is, a pathname that begins with a slash. Nevertheless, either the hyphen or the slash may be used to introduce option letters on Windows and UNIX. In the option formats given, only the hyphen is shown, but the hyphen may be replaced with a slash.
