       update-canna-dics_dir - compile dics.dir file



       update-canna-dics_dir  assembles a dics.dir file in the Canna dictionary using one or more
       alias files found in a subdirectory of /etc/X11/fonts/.  It is typically invoked only from
       the post-installation and post-removal scripts of a package containing fonts (that provide
       aliases for their names) for the X Window System, but  may  be  invoked  at  any  time  to
       reconstruct fonts.alias files.  For each directory, which is either an absolute path to an
       X font directory or (preferably) simply the last component of its path (such as "75dpi" or
       "misc"), update-canna-dics_dir will assemble /usr/lib/X11/fonts/directory/fonts.alias from
       the files found in /etc/X11/fonts/directory/package.alias.

       This enables multiple packages to provide aliases for fonts in  the  same  directory.   No
       font  package  actually  provides  the fonts.alias file in the X font directory itself, so
       there is no danger of overwriting one package's aliases with those of another.

       For instance, the two packages "xfonts-base" and "xfonts-cjk" may both install fonts  into
       the  directory  /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc.   They  each  place  their  fonts.alias  files in
       /etc/X11/fonts/misc/xfonts-base.alias       and       /etc/X11/fonts/misc/xfonts-cjk.alias
       (respectively).  update-canna-dics_dir concatenates these two files (as well as any others
       that match /etc/X11/fonts/misc/*.alias) into /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias.

       The format for fonts.alias files is given in the mkfontdir(1) manual page.

       An example of how to use update-canna-dics_dir in package maintainer scripts  is  provided
       in the Debian Policy Manual.




       update-canna-dics_dir exits with status 1 if its arguments are absent or invalid.
