update-catalog - create or update entry in SGML catalog file
update-catalog [options] --add centralized_catalog ordinary_catalog
update-catalog [options] --remove centralized_catalog ordinary_catalog
update-catalog [options] --update-super
update-catalog inserts, updates or removes entries in the SGML central-
ized catalogs located in /etc/sgml. To change the SGML super catalog
located in /etc/sgml/catalog modify the directory contents of /etc/sgml
to contain new files or symbolic links having a .cat extension or
remove (or move) existing centralized catalogs and regenerate the super
catalog using the --update-super option. See section SUPER CATALOG for
details on the generation process.

Regenerates the SGML super catalog from the contents of the
/etc/sgml directory. See section SUPER CATALOG for details on
the super catalog generation.

catalog to standard output.

--help Display the usage information and exits.
The super-catalog located in /etc/sgml/catalog cannot be directly modi-
fied. It is generated by the update-catalog --update-super command.
The generation considers files in the /etc/sgml directory that have a
.cat extension. For instance files ending in .old or .disabled are not
considered. Before adding a catalog to the super catalog it is parsed
and verified in order to not corrupt the super catalog. All referenced
catalogs are verified to actually exist. If the check fails, a message
is printed and the complete catalog is ignored. This check ensures
that a catalog from a package, which is removed but not purged, is
removed from the super catalog.
