       indextool - Sphinxsearch tool dump miscellaneous debug information about the physical


       indextool {command} [options]


       Sphinx is a collection of programs that aim to provide high quality fulltext search.

       indextool is one of the helper tools within the Sphinx package. It is used to dump
       miscellaneous debug information about the physical index. Apart ghe dumping indextool can
       perform index verification, hence the indextool name rather than just indexdump.


       The commands are as follows:

       --dumpheader FILENAME.sph
           quickly dumps the provided index header file without touching any other index files or
           even the configuration file. The report provides a breakdown of all the index
           settings, in particular the entire attribute and field list. Prior to 0.9.9-rc2, this
           command was present in CLI search utility.

       --dumpconfig FILENAME.sph
           dumps the index definition from the given index header file in (almost) compliant
           sphinx.conf file format.

       --dumpheader INDEXNAME
           dumps index header by index name with looking up the header path in the configuration

       --dumpdocids INDEXNAME
           dumps document IDs by index name. It takes the data from attribute (.spa) file and
           therefore requires docinfo=extern to work.

       --dumphitlist INDEXNAME KEYWORD
           dumps all the hits (occurences) of a given keyword in a given index, with keyword
           specified as text.

       --dumphitlist INDEXNAME --wordid ID
           dumps all the hits (occurences) of a given keyword in a given index, with keyword
           specified as internal numeric ID.

       --htmlstrip INDEXNAME
           filters stdin using HTML stripper settings for a given index, and prints the filtering
           results to stdout. Note that the settings will be taken from sphinx.conf, and not the
           index header.

       --check INDEXNAME
           checks the index data files for consistency errors that might be introduced either by
           bugs in indexer and/or hardware faults.

           strips the path names from all the file names referenced from the index (stopwords,
           wordforms, exceptions, etc). This is useful for checking indexes built on another
           machine with possibly different path layouts.

           optimizes the kill list memory use in the disk chunk of a given RT index. That is a
           one-off optimization intended for rather old RT indexes, created by development
           versions prior to 1.10-beta release. As of 1.10-beta releases, this kill list
           optimization (purging) should happen automatically, and there should never be a need
           to use this option.


       The only currently available option applies to all commands and lets you specify the
       configuration file:

       --config CONFIGFILE, -c CONFIGFILE
           overrides the built-in config file names.
