       recollindex - indexing command for the Recoll full text search system


       recollindex -h
       recollindex  [ -c <configdir> ] [ -z ] [ -m ] [ -w <seconds> ] [ -D ] [
       -x ]
       recollindex [ -c <configdir> ] -i [ -f ] [<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 explicitly 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.

       recollindex  -i will index individual files into the database. The stem
       expansion and aspell databases will not be  updated.  The  skippedPaths
       and  skippedNames  configuration  variables  will be used, so that some
       files may be skipped. You can tell recollindex to  ignore  skippedPaths
       and  skippedNames  by  setting  the -f option. This allows fully custom
       file selection for a given subtree, for which you  would  add  the  top
       directory to skippedPaths, and use any custom tool to generate the file
       list (ie: a tool from a source code control system).

       recollindex -e will erase data for individual files from the  database.
       The stem expansion databases will not be updated.

       With options -i or -e , if no file names are given on the command line,
       they will be read from stdin, so that you could for example run:

       find /path/to/dir -print | recollindex -e

       followed by

       find /path/to/dir -print | recollindex -i

       to force the reindexing of a directory tree (which has to exist  inside
       the file system area defined by topdirs in recoll.conf).

       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  at  the  end  of  the  next  normal
       indexing  run.  You  can  get  the  list  of  stemmer  names  from  the
       recollindex -l command. Note that this is mostly for experimental  use,
       the  normal  way  to  add  a  stemming  language  is  to  set it in the
       configuration, either by editing "recoll.conf"  or  by  using  the  GUI
       indexing configuration dialog.
       At  the  time  of  this writing, the following languages are recognized
       (out of Xapian's stem.h):

       ·      danish

       ·      dutch

       ·      english Martin Porter's 2002 revision of his stemmer

       ·      english_lovins Lovin's stemmer

       ·      english_porter Porter's stemmer as described in his 1980 paper

       ·      finnish

       ·      french

       ·      german

       ·      italian

       ·      norwegian

       ·      portuguese

       ·      russian

       ·      spanish

       ·      swedish

       recollindex -S  will  rebuild  the  phonetic/orthographic  index.  This
       feature uses the aspell package, which must be installed on the system.
