MAKE_SERVICES(1)	     GNUstep System Manual	      MAKE_SERVICES(1)

NAME
       make_services - generate	GNUstep	services info

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

DESCRIPTION
       make_services  builds  a	validated cache	of service information for use
       by programs that	want to	access the GNUstep services  facility.	 Addi-
       tionally, 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  every  time  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 auto-
       matically. 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.

OPTIONS
       --test filename
	      check that property list filename	contains a valid  service  in-
	      formation.

       --quiet
	      suppress warnings	(not recommended but useful in login scripts).

       --verbose
	      give verbose output.

       --help show small help screen.

EXAMPLES
       Simply rebuild the cache	of service information:

       make_services

       Check  whether  the file	ServiceInfo.plist contains a valid service de-
       scription:

       make_services --test ServiceInfo.plist

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