MKCOMPOSECACHE(8)	    System Manager's Manual	     MKCOMPOSECACHE(8)

NAME
       mkcomposecache -	create a cache file for	a compose file explicitly

SYNOPSIS
       mkcomposecache locale compose-file cache-dir [ internal-name ]

DESCRIPTION
       mkcomposecache creates a	cache file for the specified compose-file used
       in the given locale and saves it	in cache-dir.	If  internal-name  has
       been specified, it is used as the name of the compose table for comput-
       ing the hash values and	internal  validation.  This  is	 necessary  if
       global  compose cache files shall be created while using	DESTDIR	during
       X11 installation.

       Notes:

       - compose cache files are created by libX11, thus an Xserver has	to  be
	 running and DISPLAY has to be set correctly for creating cache	files.

       - libX11	will not write compose cache files if run as root or with dif-
	 ferent	real and effective uids.

       - libX11	will not create	compose	cache files  in	 directories  writable
	 for other users.

DIAGNOSTICS
       mkcomposecache  returns	with  exit  status  1  on  general  errors (no
       Xserver,	invoked	as root, etc.) and 2 on	unsupported locales.

       An exit status of 0 does	not imply that a cache file is actually	 writ-
       ten,  though.  This very	much depends on	the used libX11	and its	safety
       regulations.
