NAME

update-default-ispell – update default ispell dictionary

SYNOPSIS

update-default-ispell [–skip-symlinks] [–triggered]

DESCRIPTION

WARNING: Not to be used from the command line unless you know very well
what you are doing.

This program is intended to be called from ispell dictionary package
postinst, from select-default-ispell or from dictionaries-common
postinst.

When called under dpkg control with the –trigger option the script is
run normally, otherwise the dictionaries-common update-default-ispell
trigger is enabled for later run.

With the –skip-symlinks option the symlinks setting is skipped. This
is needed for update-default-ispell when called from dictionaries-
common postinst, since autobuilt hashes may not yet be available.

When run normally (from the command line or with –trigger) this script
rebuilds the info at /var/cache/dictionaries-common/ispell.db after
files under /var/lib/dictionaries-common/ispell, reads the system
default from the debconf database and unless disabled, set default
symlinks in /etc/dictionaries-common pointing to the appropriate files
in /usr/lib/ispell/.

For ispell this script also updates the system-wide setting
/etc/dictionaries-common/ispell-default and the emacsen, jed, and
SquirrelMail support after known info.

OPTIONS

–skip-symlinks Do not try to set symlinks at /etc/dictionaries-common dir.
–triggered Run all the code instead of trying to enable
update-default-ispell trigger
