       glib-compile-schemas - GSettings schema compiler

       glib-compile-schemas [OPTION...] {DIRECTORY}

       glib-compile-schemas compiles all the GSettings XML schema files in DIRECTORY into a
       binary file with the name gschemas.compiled that can be used by GSettings. The XML schema
       files must have the filename extension .gschema.xml. For a detailed description of the XML
       file format, see the GSettings documentation.

       At runtime, GSettings looks for schemas in the glib-2.0/schemas subdirectories of all
       directories specified in the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable. The usual location to
       install schema files is /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas.

       In addition to schema files, glib-compile-schemas reads 'vendor override' files, which are
       key files that can override default values for keys in the schemas. The group names in the
       key files are the schema id, and the values are written in serialized GVariant form.
       Vendor override files must have the filename extension .gschema.override.

       By convention, vendor override files begin with nn_ where nn is a number from 00 to 99.
       Higher numbered files have higher priority (eg: if the same override is made in a file
       numbered 10 and then again in a file numbered 20, the override from 20 will take

       -h, --help
	   Print help and exit

	   Store gschemas.compiled in the TARGET directory instead of DIRECTORY.

	   Don't write gschemas.compiled. This option can be used to check .gschema.xml sources
	   for errors.

	   Do not enforce restrictions on key names. Note that this option is purely to facility
	   the transition from GConf, and will be removed at some time in the future.
