We'll start by introducing a few concepts which should make it easier to understand how refdb-mode works. In general it is useful to have a basic understanding of RefDB and of its command-line clients. See the RefDB manual for further information.
RefDB needs to know which reference database you want to work with (there might be more than one on your system). To this end, refdb-mode remembers the name of the database once it is set and uses it for all subsequent commands that access a reference database. You have two options to permanently set the default database:
Add the following command to your
~/.emacs: (setq refdb-database "EXAMPLE"). Replace "EXAMPLE" with the name of your reference database.
Use the Customization buffer to set the RefDB database.
