       gtk-update-icon-cache - Icon theme caching utility

       gtk-update-icon-cache [--force] [--ignore-theme-index] [--index-only |
			     --include-image-data] [--source NAME] [--quiet]
			     [--validate] PATH

       gtk-update-icon-cache creates mmapable cache files for icon themes.

       It expects to be	given the PATH to a icon theme directory containing an
       index.theme, e.g.  /usr/share/icons/hicolor, and	writes a
       icon-theme.cache	containing cached information about the	icons in the
       directory tree below the	given directory.

       GTK+ can	use the	cache files created by gtk-update-icon-cache to	avoid
       a lot of	system call and	disk seek overhead when	the application
       starts. Since the format	of the cache files allows them to be mmaped
       shared between multiple applications, the overall memory	consumption is
       reduced as well.

       --force,	-f
	   Overwrite an	existing cache file even if it appears to be uptodate.

       --ignore-theme-index, -t
	   Don't check for the existence of index.theme	in the icon theme
	   directory. Without this option, gtk-update-icon-cache refuses to
	   create an icon cache	in a directory which does not appear to	be the
	   toplevel directory of an icon theme.

       --index-only, -i
	   Don't include image data in the cache.

	   Include image data in the cache.

       --source, -c
	   Output a C header file declaring a constant NAME with the contents
	   of the icon cache.

       --quiet,	-q
	   Turn	off verbose output.

       --validate, -v
	   Validate existing icon cache.
