NAME
       gen-index - generate new	GNATS database index

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	speci-
	    fied, the database named default is	assumed.   This	 option	 over-
	    rides 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 data-
	    base.

       -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 ac-
       cess.

       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.
