update-default-wordlist - update default wordlist


 update-default-wordlist [--skip-symlinks] [--triggered]


WARNING: Not to be used from the command line unless you know very well what you are doing.

This program is intended to be called from wordlist package postinst, from select-default-wordlist or from dictionaries-common postinst.

When called under dpkg control with the --trigger option the script is run normally, otherwise the dictionaries-common update-default-wordlist trigger is enabled for later run.

With the --skip-symlinks option the symlinks setting is skipped.

When run normally (from the command line or with --trigger) this script rebuilds the info at /var/cache/dictionaries-common/wordlist.db after files under /var/lib/dictionaries-common/wordlist, reads the system default from the debconf database and unless disabled, set default symlinks in /etc/dictionaries-common pointing to the appropriate files in /usr/share/dict/.


 --skip-symlinks  Do not try to set symlinks at /etc/dictionaries-common dir.
 --triggered      Run all the code instead of trying to enable
                  update-default-wordlist trigger
