     NAME
          pg_updatedicts - build PostgreSQL dictionaries from
          myspell/hunspell ones

     SYNOPSIS
          pg_updatedicts

     DESCRIPTION
          pg_updatedicts makes dictionaries and affix files from
          installed myspell and hunspell dictionary packages available
          to PostgreSQL for usage with tsearch and word stem support.
          In particular, it takes all *.dic and *.aff files from
          /usr/share/myspell/dicts/, converts them to UTF-8, puts them
          into /var/cache/postgresql/dicts/ with *.dict and *.affix
          suffixes, and symlinks them into
          /usr/share/postgresql/version/tsearch_data/, where
          PostgreSQL looks for them.

          Through postgresql-common's dpkg trigger, this program is
          automatically run whenever a myspell or hunspell dictionary
          package is installed or upgraded.
