       beagle-build-index [options] <index_path> <path> [path path path]


       beagle-build-index,  is  a  tool  designed  for building static indexes
       outside of the Beagle daemon.

       Running beagle-build-index by hand is  of  use  for  those  wishing  to
       create  and  build static indexes used by the Beagle daemon. The static
       indexes can be helpful in many cases but most notably used  as  system-
       wide   indexes   shared  by  all  users,  and  as  a  way  for  system-
       administrators to run  indexing  on  a  central  server  in  a  network

       beagle-build-index  will index the data specified by the path arguments
       and create an index in the index_path directory. If a suitable index is
       found  in the index directory, if will automatically append data to the
       index if the file at hand has been modified since it was last  indexed.
       If it can’t find a suitable index (non-existant or version-mismatch) is
       will purge the directory recursively.

       The beagle-build-index tool is  not  intended  to  be  invoked  by  the
       standard user.


       beagle-build-index takes the following options

              If specified, do recursive crawling on the paths specified

              If specified, echo verbose debugging information

              If specified, build text-cache of documents used for snippets

       --allow-pattern [pattern]
              Only allow files that match the pattern to be indexed.

       --deny-pattern [pattern]
              Keep any files that match the pattern from being indexed.

       --remap [path1:path2]
              If  specified,  remap  the  target path by prefix. path1 will be
              replaced with path2. This option is intended  to  be  used  when
              generating  pre-built  indexes,  where  the  final  path will be
              differ from the current one.
