UPDATE-DEFAULT-WORDLIST(8) UPDATE-DEFAULT-WORDLIST(8)

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
