JMAKEWHATIS(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		JMAKEWHATIS(1)

NAME
     jmakewhatis -- create Japanese or original	(English) whatis database

SYNOPSIS
     jmakewhatis [-a | -append]	[-h | -help] [-i | -indent column]
		 [-n | -name name] [-o | -outfile file]	[-v | -verbose]
		 [directories ...]

DESCRIPTION
     Jmakewhatis extracts the name and a short description from	unformatted
     manpages and creates the japanese(whatis) 1 database.  Jmakewhatis	can
     read gzip'ed manpages.  Directory names a directory containing manpage
     subdirectories (named man.+).  Colons are treated as spaces, hence
     jmakewhatis $MANPATH or jmakewhatis `manpath` are allowed.	 You have to
     set the environment variable LC_CTYPE (or LANG) to	ja_JP.EUC if directory
     contains Japanese manpage subdirectories.

OPTIONS
     -a, -append
	     Append mode. Don't	delete old entries in whatis database. Note:
	     the new database will be sorted without repeated lines and
	     jmakewhatis does not check	if old entries are valid.

     -h, -help
	     Print options and exit.

     -i, -indent column
	     Justify description strings to column (default 24).

     -n, -name name
	     Use name instead of whatis.

     -o, -outfile file
	     Write all output to file instead of dirname/whatis.

     -v, -verbose
	     Issue more	warnings (to stderr).  For every parsed	man page write
	     a single char: `.'	for an uncompressed page, `*' for a compressed
	     page, and `+' for a link.

EXAMPLES
     jmakewhatis $MANPATH

     Create whatis database for	all directories	in your	$MANPATH.

     jmakewhatis -outfile /tmp/mywhatis	/usr/share/man/ja $HOME/man

     Create whatis database /tmp/mywhatis.  Traverse directories
     /usr/share/man/ja and $HOME/man.  Don't create /usr/share/man/ja/whatis
     or	$HOME/man/whatis.

     jmakewhatis -name windex $HOME/man

     Create whatis database windex instead of whatis.  May be useful for So-
     laris.
