I found manual pages for the following:

You'll find the source code for these programs under (yes, 
you'll have to compile, if you haven't already). You might find the 
grass/informix programs more useful, if you have that database. That code 
has also been adapted for a couple other relational databases; I'm sure 
someone else on this list could provide more information along that line.

Good luck,
