dhelp_parse - Debian online help parser
dhelp_parse [ -r | -i | -a doc-base_file | -d doc-base_file ]
This program is used by package developers to register the documents included in a package. In most cases it is called by install-docs (see doc-base package), which in turn is called from the postinst and prerm scripts of a Debian package. An index of the registered documents is written in the directory /usr/share/doc/HTML
-h,--help Displays the help page. -a Adds the documentation found in the given doc-base files to the dhelp database. -d Deletes the documentation found in the given doc-base files from the dhelp database. -i Does an incremental update of the documents index for all documentation added with the -a switch after the last index update. -r Ignored, kept for compatibility.
You should usually rely on install-docs to do the work for you, but if for some reason you want to use dhelp_parse directly (not recommended!), you have to call it like this: postinst if [ -x /usr/sbin/dhelp_parse ]; then dhelp_parse -a /var/lib/doc-base/documents/foo fi prerm if [ -x /usr/sbin/dhelp_parse ]; then dhelp_parse -d /var/lib/doc-base/documents/foo fi Note that /var/lib/doc-base/documents/foo has to be a valid doc-base file (see doc-base documentation).
