scrollkeeper manages document metadata and keeps track of various document attributes such as language, format, subject, classification,
copyright, and so on. scrollkeeper supports OMF (Open Metadata Format), which is a simple 16-element XML file format. OMF is a subset of
the Dublin Core metadata specification developed by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative. Currently, scrollkeeper can extract table of con-
tents and index information only from DocBook documents.
The following commands are supported:
Exports the scrollkeeper contents list for the specified locale and the specified contents file into a temporary file, and displays the
name of the temporary file.
Exports the scrollkeeper contents list for the specified locale into a temporary file, and displays the name of the temporary file.
Exports the scrollkeeper extended contents list for the specified locale into a temporary file, and displays the name of the temporary
file. The extended contents list contains both the document tree and the table of contents for each document.
Displays the path to the file containing the table of contents of a document registered in the OMF database. Otherwise, displays a mes-
sage to indicate that the requested document is not installed.
Displays the path to the file containing the table of contents of the document with the specified scrollkeeper series ID.
Registers a document in the scrollkeeper database.
Removes the existing scrollkeeper database and creates a new database by registering the documents described by the OMF files found in
the OMF search path. This command is useful if the scrollkeeper database becomes corrupted. For more information about the scroll-
keeper-rebuilddb command, see the Examples section.
Removes a document from the scrollkeeper database and removes any related files from the scrollkeeper database and contents lists. The
document and the OMF file are not removed or modified.
Rescans the list of directories in the OMF search path for new and removed documents, and updates the scrollkeeper database accord-
ingly. Unless a search path is specified with the -o option, all directories in the default OMF search path are rescanned.
The following options are supported:
-n Use the network to retrieve the DTD if it is not available via the system's XML catalog.
-o path Specifies the search path for OMF files.
-p path Specifies the location of the scrollkeeper database.
-q Suppresses warnings and error messages.
-v Displays all warnings and error messages, in addition to logging these messages in the /var/log/scrollkeeper.log file.
The following operands are supported:
file Specifies the location of the contents file.
locale Specifies the locale.
omf-file Specifies the location of the OMF file.
series-id Specifies the scrollkeeper series ID.
Example 1: Removing a Document From the scrollkeeper Database
example% scrollkeeper-uninstall /usr/share/omf/example/filename.omf
Example 2: Getting the scrollkeeper Extended Contents List for the C Locale
example% scrollkeeper-get-extended-content-list C
Example 3: Setting Up the scrollkeeper Database for a Diskless Client Clone Area
example% scrollkeeper-rebuilddb -p /export/root/clone/Solaris_9/sun4u/var/lib/scrollkeeper -o /export/exec/Solaris_9_sparc.all/usr/share/omf
If the scrollkeeper database must be installed in a location other than the standard location, use the -p path option to specify the loca-
tion of the scrollkeeper database, where path is an empty directory. The scrollkeeper-rebuilddb command will not proceed if you specify a
populated path for this option.
If the OMF files must be read from a location other than the standard location, use the -o path option to specify the location of the OMF
files. Specify the complete pathname, for example, /usr/share/omf. If you specify a partial pathname, for example, /usr/share, the scroll-
keeper-rebuilddb command will take a long time, produce many warnings, and may crash.
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables that affect the execution of scrollkeeper: NLSPATH.
OMF_PATH Provides scrollkeeper with an alternative list of directories in which to search for OMF files. This variable over-
rides the default search path. If the list contains multiple directories, the entries should be separated by
