Rebuild a Pervasive file with a command line?

Rebuild a Pervasive file with a command line?

Rebuild a Pervasive file with a command line?

Is this doable?  If so can someone show me the proper command line syntax?

For example I want to rebuild the file ARCUSFIL.btr in the database Data_02.  How can I do this on a command line?

RE: Rebuild a Pervasive file with a command line?

With one command line, no.  
You can rebuild a file using BUTIL.  
You would need to wrap it in a batch file.  SOmething like:
BUTIL -CLONE newfile oldfile
BUTIL -COPY oldfile newfile
DEL oldfile
REN newfile oldfile
