Hey Tomáš,

To recreate the database on the destination machine it has to be ran
in a slightly different way:

cat collection.txt | txt2db collection.ldb

This tells your operating system to take whatever is in
collection.txt and pass it to txt2db which in turn takes everything
it is given and tries to turn it into a GDBM database.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
