recollindex - indexing command for the Recoll full text search system
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] [ -z ] [ -m ] [ -w <seconds> ] [ -D ] [
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -i <filename [filename ...]>
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -e <filename [filename ...]>
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -l
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -s <lang>
recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -S
The recollindex utility allows you to perform indexing operations for
the Recoll text search system.
The -c option specifies the configuration directory name, overriding
the default or $RECOLL_CONFDIR.
There are several modes of operation.
The normal mode will index the set of files described in the
configuration file recoll.conf. This will incrementally update the
database with files that changed since the last run. If option -z is
given, the database will be erased before starting.
If option -m is given, recollindex is started for real time monitoring,
using the file system monitoring package it was configured for (either
fam, gamin, or inotify). This mode must have been explicitely
configured when building the package, it is not available by default.
The program will normally detach from the controlling terminal and
become a daemon. If option -D is given, it will stay in the foreground.
Option -w <seconds> can be used to specify that the program should
sleep for the specified time before indexing begins. The default value
is 60. The daemon normally monitors the X11 session and exits when it
is reset. Option -x disables this X11 session monitoring (daemon will
stay alive even if it cannot connect to the X11 server).
recollindex -l will list the names of available language stemmers.
The other modes are useful mainly for testing.
recollindex -i will index individual files into the database. The stem
expansion databases will not be updated.
recollindex -e will erase data for individual files from the database.
The stem expansion databases will not be updated.
recollindex -s will build the stem expansion database for a given
language, which may or may not be part of the list in the configuration
file. If the language is not part of the configuration, the stem
expansion database will be deleted during the next normal run. You can
get the list of stemmer names from the recollindex -m command. At the
time of this writbng, the following languages (abbreviations) are
recognized (out of Xapian’s stem.h):
· danish (da)
· dutch (nl)
· english (en) Martin Porter’s 2002 revision of his stemmer
· english_lovins (lovins) Lovin’s stemmer
· english_porter (porter) Porter’s stemmer as described in
his 1980 paper
· finnish (fi)
· french (fr)
· german (de)
· italian (it)
· norwegian (no)
· portuguese (pt)
· russian (ru)
· spanish (es)
· swedish (sv)
recollindex -S will rebuild the phonetic/orthographic index. This
feature uses the aspell package, which must be installed on the system.
