NAME
       update-desktop-database - Desktop file caching utility

SYNOPSIS
       update-desktop-database [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [filepath]

DESCRIPTION
       update-desktop-database	creates  cache	files  for  desktop  file  MIME  type mapping for
       improved MIME lookup performance.

       It expects to be given the path to a directory  or  directories	containing  a  number  of
       application  installed  .desktop  files,  e.g. /usr/share/applications, and writes a mime-
       info.cache containing cached information about the MIME types that  each  application  can
       handle.	If  no	directory  is provided, this utility will use a default directory list as
       specified in the FreeDesktop MIME specification. This cache file is used to avoid a lot of
       system call and disk seek overhead in a number of applications.
