       scrollkeeper-update  - identify new, modified, or removed OMF files and update the scroll-
       keeper databases

       scrollkeeper-update [ -v ] [ -q ] [ -p database-directory ] [ -o omf-directories ]

       This synchronizes the scrollkeeper database with  the  OMF  directory.	It  searches  the
       scrollkeeper  OMF  directory to identify if any files were added, removed, or modified and
       updates its internal database files to reflect any changes.

       This utility is generally executed as the last step of installation, after the OMF file is
       copied  into  place.   It is also typically the last step of uninstallation, after the OMF
       file is removed.  Using this, an administrator can easily manually install  and	uninstall
       documents into the database.  It can also be run to guarantee the database is fully up-to-

       Note that because scrollkeeper-update is normally run during installation and  its  output
       is  typically  seen  by	users,	non-critical  warnings and errors such as those caused by
       invalid metadata are written to the log file instead of to the terminal. Developers should
       use the log file to identify any problems.

       -v     Be  verbose: Say which scrollkeeper-install and scrollkeeper-uninstall commands are
	      being run to bring the database up to date.

       -q     Run in quiet mode, suppressing output of all but the most serious warning and error
	      messages to STDOUT.  Note that most output to the log file will be unchanged.

       -p database-directory
	      Use  database-directory  as the directory for the scrollkeeper database rather than
	      the usual one obtained by running omf-config --pkglocalstatedir.

       -o omf-directories
	      Examine the directories named in omf-directories rather  than  the  one  usual  one
	      obtained by running scrollkeeper-config --omfdir (or specified in the OMF_DIR envi-
	      ronment variable if set).  The omf-directories should be a colon-separated list  of

	      If  no -o option is specified, this variable overrides the scrollkeeper-config-pro-
	      vided OMF directory.  It should be a colon-separated list of directories.
