       doodled - a daemon to keep your doodle database up-to-date


       doodled [OPTIONS] [FILENAMES]*


       doodled  monitors  your  filesystem for changes and updates the doodle database to keep it
       always up-to-date with the latest data.  doodled is experimental at this point.   It  uses
       libfam and is thus limited to monitoring less than 1024 directories for changes.


       -d FILENAME, --database=FILENAME
              use  FILENAME  for  the  location of the database (use when building or searching).
              This option is particularly useful when doodle is used to search different types of
              files  (or is operated with different extractor options).  Using this option doodle
              can be used to build specialized indices (i.e. one per file system), which  can  in
              turn  improve  search  performance.  When searching, you can pass a colon-separated
              list of database file names, in that case all databases are  searched.   Note  that
              the  disk-space consumption of a single database is typically slightly smaller than
              if the database is split into multiple files.  Nevertheless, the space-savings  are
              likely  to  be  small  (a few percent).  You can also use  the environment variable
              DOODLE_PATH to set the list of database files to search.  The option overrides  the
              environment  variable if both are used.  If the option is not given and DOODLE_PATH
              is not set, "/var/lib/doodle" is used.

       -D, --debug
              do not detach from the terminal (do not daemonize).  Also will print  log  messages
              to stderr if no logfile is specified.

       -f, --filenames
              include filenames (full path) in the set of keywords

       -h, --help
              print help page

       -l LIBRARIES, --library=LIBRARIES
              specify  which  libextractor  plugins to use (for building the index with -b or for
              printing information about files with -e)

       -L FILENAME, --log=FILENAME
              log messages to the given logfile.

       -m LIMIT, --memory=LIMIT
              use at most LIMIT MB of memory for  the  nodes  of  the  suffix-tree  (after  that,
              serialize  to  disk).  Note that a smaller value will reduce memory consumption but
              increase the size of the temporary file (and slow down indexing).  The default is 8

       -n, --nodefault
              do not load the default set of plugins (only load plugins specified with -l)

       -P PATH, --prunepaths=PATH
              Directories  to  not put in the database, which would otherwise be. The environment
              variable PRUNEPATHS also sets this value. Default is "/tmp /usr/tmp  /var/tmp  /dev
              /proc  /sys".   This  option  can also be used when searching, in which case search
              results in the specified directories will be ignored.

       -v, --version
              print the version number

       -V, --verbose
              be verbose


              Colon-separated list of databases to search.  Note that when building the  database
              this  path  must  either only contain one filename or the option -b must be used to
              specify the database file.  Default is "/var/lib/doodle".

              Space-separated list of paths to exclude.  Can be overridden with the -P option.


       Doodle   depends   on   GNU   libextractor.    You   can   download   libextractor    from


       extract(1), doodle(1), fam(3), libdoodle(3)


       libdoodle and doodle are released under the GPL.
