Sphinx is a collection of programs that aim to provide high quality fulltext search. indexer fetches all documents from the configured
sources and creates the index data files.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has docu-
mentation in HTML format, see below.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is
included below. For a complete description, see the HTML documentation.
--config Specify an alternate configuration file to use.
--all Causes indexer to (re-)index all indexes, instead of the specified ones.
--quiet Suppress all non-error output.
Suppress progress information.
Show summary of options.
--rotate Writes index data files as INDEX.new files and sends a SIGHUP to searchd, causing it to rotate the index files.

Sphinx and it's programs are documented fully by the Spinx reference manual available in /usr/share/doc/sphinxsearch.
