       scrollkeeper-update  - identify new, modified, or removed OMF files and
       update the scrollkeeper databases


       scrollkeeper-update [ -v ] [ -q ] [ -n ] [ -p database-directory ] [ -o
       omf-directories ]


       This synchronizes the scrollkeeper database with the OMF directory.  It
       searches the scrollkeeper OMF directory to identify if any  files  were
       added,  removed, or modified and updates its internal database files to
       reflect any changes.

       This utility is generally executed as the last  step  of  installation,
       after the OMF file is copied into place.  It is also typically the last
       step of uninstallation, after the OMF file is removed.  Using this,  an
       administrator  can easily manually install and uninstall documents into
       the database.  It can also be run to guarantee the  database  is  fully

       Note   that   because   scrollkeeper-update   is  normally  run  during
       installation and its output is typically seen  by  users,  non-critical
       warnings  and  errors  such  as  those  caused  by invalid metadata are
       written to the log file instead of to the terminal.  Developers  should
       use the log file to identify any problems.


       -v     Be  verbose:  Say  which  scrollkeeper-install and scrollkeeper-
              uninstall commands are being run to bring  the  database  up  to

       -q     Run  in  quiet  mode,  suppressing  output  of  all but the most
              serious warning and error messages to STDOUT.   Note  that  most
              output to the log file will be unchanged.

       -n     Use  the  network to retrieve the DTD if it is not available via
              the system’s XML catalog.

       -p database-directory
              Use database-directory as the  directory  for  the  scrollkeeper
              database   rather   than  the  usual  one  obtained  by  running
              scrollkeeper-config --pkglocalstatedir.

       -o omf-directories
              Examine the directories named in omf-directories rather than the
              one  usual  one obtained by running scrollkeeper-config --omfdir
              (or specified in the OMF_DIR environment variable if set).   The
              omf-directories should be a colon-separated list of directories.


              If no -o  option  is  specified,  this  variable  overrides  the
              scrollkeeper-config-provided  OMF  directory.   It  should  be a
              colon-separated list of directories.
