Subject RE: Database corruption repair tool
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2016 06:41:18 GMT
Thanks for the great work, Emmanuel.

I have some questions. As discussed previously, it's hard to recreate the database corrupt
issue. Did you include a test with a sample corrupt database image and show if it's can be
repaired? All the work in a unit test or integration test. Does the repair process just read
the database image without any updating or writing? Sorry I don't get the chance to understand
the work in details, and it's possible you have done that already. If so please ignore my
concerns. Thanks.

Obviously, it's not perfect :/ There is some needed work on the wrapper, and the logs.

i'll try to get a new version out tomorrow evening.
