Command Line InterfaceΒΆ

The command line interface includes two tools: pbs (ProBoards Scraper), the tool used to actually scrape a forum or part of a forum, and pbd (ProBoards Scraper Database utility), a tool used to perform simple queries on a database file. The database tool provides a convenient way to view select contents of the database presented in a readable manner, though it lacks the ability to perform complex queries and does not exhaustively show all information in the database.
