ispell-autobuildhash


SYNOPSIS
        ispell-autobuildhash [--force]

          Options:
           --debug      Show some extra ispell-autobuildhash information.
           --dry-run    Show what would be done, but do nothing real.
           --force      Rebuild the hash file for all dicts providing a
                        compat file skipping the test.
           --triggered  Tell the script that is run in the triggers stage.

DESCRIPTION
       ispell-autobuildhash is a script that will manage ispell hash files
       autobuild, intended to be called from the dictionaries-common tools.
       Depending on the ispell compatibility level and on the compatibility
       level used for the hash file if present, will decide whether it must be
       rebuilt or not. This script will only work on ispell packages prepared
       to use it, it will do nothing for other ispell dict packages.

OPTIONS
        --debug      Show some extra ispell-autobuildhash information.
        --dry-run    Show what would be done, but do nothing real.
        --force      Rebuild the hash file for all dicts providing a compat
                     file regardless of the compatibility levels found.
        --triggered  Tell the script that is run in the triggers stage. When
                     run under dpkg control, do not try to set the
                     'ispell-autobuildhash' trigger, but run real
                     B<ispell-autobuildhash> code. When not run under dpkg
                     control, real code will always be run and '--triggered'
                     option has no real effect.

PACKAGE MAINTAINERS
       To use this system, ispell-autobuildhash expects a $dict.compat file in
       /var/lib/ispell ($dict stands for the hash or affix file basename)
       containing ispell major or compatibility version for last successful
       build or "0" or en empty file if hash is to be rebuild, as is for
       dictionary instalation and upgrades.

       When upgrading ispell, script will check if version in $dict.compat is
       different from ispell.compat and rebuild if so, updating $dict.compat
       with the new value. The particular way things are done depends on
       whether your dict has a single source or a multiple source like ipolish
       has.

       The most common case is having a single source. In this case you must
       put the $dict.aff file at /usr/lib/ispell/$dict.aff as usual and the
       munched wordlist compressed with gzip at
       /usr/share/ispell/$dict.mwl.gz.

       This script supports the way ipolish allows selection of
       subdictionaries to be put in the hash file. It will detect the presence
       of  the main language .desc file and call update-ipolish-hash as
       appropriate.


       Ispell dictionary packages using this script must make sure that
       $dict.compat is reset on every new install/upgrade, so hash is rebuilt.
       They must also make sure that $dict.compat and
       /var/lib/ispell/$dict.hash are removed on package removal

       As of version 1.10, installdeb-ispell script will understand
       'auto-compat' field in $dict.info-ispell file to help with this by
       adding needed debhelper snippets. Put in that entry the base name(s) of
       your compat file(s) and check resulting maintainer scripts after build.

       Note that you are no longer suggested to ship empty files at
       /var/lib/ispell/$dict.compat and /var/lib/ispell/$dict.hash to help
       with reset/removal of those files, but explicitly create/update them on
       install and explicitly remove them on removal.

       ispell maintainer should also call this script from package postinst.
       When comparing versions it will get the ispell version from file
       /usr/share/ispell/ispell.compat, or if it does not exists, from the
       upstream version as given in the first line of 'ispell -vv output.
