Manual Reference Pages - FILETYPE-COMPILE (1)
- compile list of file types for use with filetype(1)
filetype-compile file_list file_spec
filetype-compile compiles the text file
file_list, which contains specifications about file types to use for the filetype(1) program into a binary database, which is written to
file_spec. Firstly, the program reads in the data from
file_list and counts the number of records. Then it writes the binary database and counts the number of records in there to check if the two numbers match. Because of potential errors due to multiple specfiles,
filetype-compile reads from the binary database and counts the number of records. If all three numbers match, the records are sorted and written one final time. Otherwise an error message is displayed.
Default location of the specfile.
file(1), filetype(1), libfiletype(2).
