       darktable-generate-cache - update darktable's thumbnail cache


           darktable-generate-cache [-h, --help; --version] [-m, --max-mip <0-7>] [--core <darktable options>]


       darktable is a digital photography workflow application for Linux, Mac OS X and several
       other Unices.  It's described further in darktable(1).

       darktable-generate-cache updates darktable's thumbnail cache.  You can start this program
       to generate all missing thumbnails in the background when your computer is idle.


       All parameters are optional.  If started without parameters darktable-generate-cache uses
       reasonable defaults.

       -h, --help
           Gives usage information and terminates.

           Gives copyright and version information and terminates.

       --min-mip <0-7>
       -m, --max-mip <0-7>
           darktable can handle and store thumbnails with up to eight different resolution steps
           for each image.  These parameters define which maximum resolution should be generated
           and default to a range of 0-2.  There is normally no need to generate all possible
           resolutions here; missing ones will be automatically generated by darktable the moment
           they are needed.  When asked to generate multiple resolutions at once, the lower-
           resolution images are quickly downsampled from the highest-resolution image.

       --min-imgid <N>
       --max-imgid <N>
           Specifies the range of internal image IDs from the database to work on.  If no range
           is given, darktable-generate-cache will process all images from the entire collection.

       --core <darktable options>
           All command line parameters following --core are passed to the darktable core and
           handled as standard parameters.  See darktable(1) for a detailed description of the
