SYNOPSIS

gen-index
[ -n | --numeric ] [ -h | --help ]
[ -o outfile | --outfile=outfile ]
[ -i | --import ] [ -e | --export ]
[ -d databasename | --database=databasename ]
[ -V | --version ]

DESCRIPTION

Builds an index for the specified GNATS database. The index is printed to standard output by default.

OPTIONS

-n, --numeric
  Sorts index entries numerically rather than by their order in the categories list.
-d databasename, --database=databasename
  Specifies the database to be indexed. If no database is specified, the database named default is assumed. This option overrides the database specified in the GNATSDB environment variable.
-o outfile, --outfile=outfile
  Prints the index to outfile rather than to the standard output.
-i, --import
  Import the existing index file instead of re-indexing the database.
-e, --export
  Force plaintext output
-h, --help
  Prints usage for gen-index.
-V, --version
  Prints the version number of gen-index.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use. For a local database, it contains the name of the database to access.

For network access via gnatsd, it contains a colon-separated list of strings that describe the remote database, in the form
server:port:databasename:username:password
Any of the fields may be omitted, but at least one colon must appear; otherwise, the value is assumed to be the name of a local database.

If GNATSDB is not set, it is assumed that the database is local and that its name is default.
