MAKE_SERVICES(1) GNUstep System Manual MAKE_SERVICES(1)

make_services - generate GNUstep services info

make_services [--test filename ] [--verbose|--quiet]

make_services builds a validated cache of service information for use by programs that want to access the GNUstep services facility. Additionally, it builds a list of applications and service bundles found in the standard directories. This cache is usually stored in the file named .GNUstepServices in the user's GNUstep directory.
Most commonly, make_services is called from within the GNUstep.sh or GNUstep.csh script to update the service information everytime the GNUstep environmet is set up, i.e. in a login script. But of course it is possible to run make_services from the command line whenever you wish, for example after having installed a new application or service.
The Services menu in an application's mainmenu is usually updated automatically. However, it may be necessary to close an open or torn off menu for the changes to appear. Also, the workspace manager may have to be closed and restarted for file association changes to take effect.

--test filename
check that property list filename contains a valid service information.
--quiet
suppress warnings (not recommended but useful in login scripts).
--verbose
give verbose output.
--help
show small help screen.

Simply rebuild the cache of service information:
make_services
Check whether the file ServiceInfo.plist contains a valid service description:
make_services --test ServiceInfo.plist

Giving both --quiet and --verbose on the command line will result in verbose output, ignoring the --quiet argument.
