       update-texmf - shell script to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf


       update-texmf [options]


       This manual page documents briefly the update-texmf command.  This manual page was written
       for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original script was designed for  Debian
       packaging system.

       update-texmf   is   a   shell  script  to  generate  /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf  from  files  in

       The tex-common provides 05TeXMF.cnf to 95NonPath.cnf and we assume that other TeX  related
       packages  should use the name only with the lower cases.  The two digit numeral determines
       the order in which update-texmf read a file.

       A user who wants to customize /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf should add, for example,  22mymacro.cnf
       in  /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and run 'update-texmf'.  Thanks to ucf(1) update-texmf will regard
       manual changes of /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf, however it is recommended to change the  files  in
       /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf.
