SYNOPSIS

jmakewhatis [-a-| -append ] [-h-| -help ] [-i-| -indent column] [-n-| -name name] [-o-| -outfile file] [-v-| -verbose ] [directories ...]

DESCRIPTION

Jmakewhatis extracts the name and a short description from unformatted manpages and creates the japanese whatis 1 database. Jmakewhatis can read gzip’ed manpages. Directory names a directory containing manpage subdirectories (named man.+). Colons are treated as spaces, hence jmakewhatis $MANPATH or jmakewhatis ‘manpath‘ are allowed. You have to set the environment variable LC_CTYPE (or LANG) to ja_JP.EUC if directory contains Japanese manpage subdirectories.

OPTIONS

-a -, -append
  Append mode. Don’t delete old entries in whatis database. Note: the new database will be sorted without repeated lines and jmakewhatis does not check if old entries are valid.
-h -, -help
  Print options and exit.
-i -, -indent column
  Justify description strings to column(default 24).
-n -, -name name
  Use name instead of whatis.
-o -, -outfile file
  Write all output to file instead of dirname/whatis.
-v -, -verbose
  Issue more warnings (to stderr). For every parsed man page write a single char: .’ for an uncompressed page, *’ for a compressed page, and +’ for a link.

EXAMPLES

jmakewhatis $MANPATH

Create whatis database for all directories in your $MANPATH.

jmakewhatis -outfile /tmp/mywhatis /usr/share/man/ja $HOME/man

Create whatis database /tmp/mywhatis. Traverse directories /usr/share/man/ja and $HOME/man. Don’t create /usr/share/man/ja/whatis or $HOME/man/whatis.

jmakewhatis -name windex $HOME/man

Create whatis database windex instead of whatis. May be useful for Solaris.
