NAME

update-default-wordlist – update default wordlist

SYNOPSIS

update-default-wordlist [–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 wordlist package postinst,
from select-default-wordlist 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-wordlist
trigger is enabled for later run.

With the –skip-symlinks option the symlinks setting is skipped.

When run normally (from the command line or with –trigger) this script
rebuilds the info at /var/cache/dictionaries-common/wordlist.db after
files under /var/lib/dictionaries-common/wordlist, 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/share/dict/.

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-wordlist trigger
