UPDATE-DEFAULT-ISPELL(8)  (2021-10-04)   UPDATE-DEFAULT-ISPELL(8)

     NAME
          update-default-ispell - update default ispell dictionary

     SYNOPSIS
           update-default-ispell [--skip-symlinks] [--triggered]

     DESCRIPTION
          WARNING: Not to be used from the command line unless you
          know very well what you are doing.

          This program is intended to be called from ispell dictionary
          package postinst, from select-default-ispell or from
          dictionaries-common postinst.

          When called under dpkg control with the --trigger option the
          script is run normally, otherwise the dictionaries-common
          update-default-ispell trigger is enabled for later run.

          With the --skip-symlinks option the symlinks setting is
          skipped.  This is needed for update-default-ispell when
          called from dictionaries-common postinst, since autobuilt
          hashes may not yet be available.

          When run normally (from the command line or with --trigger)
          this script rebuilds the info at
          /var/cache/dictionaries-common/ispell.db after files under
          /var/lib/dictionaries-common/ispell, reads the system
          default from the debconf database and unless disabled, set
          default symlinks in /etc/dictionaries-common pointing to the
          appropriate files in /usr/lib/ispell/.

          For ispell this script also updates the system-wide setting
          /etc/dictionaries-common/ispell-default and the emacsen,
          jed, and SquirrelMail support after known info.

     OPTIONS
           --skip-symlinks  Do not try to set symlinks at /etc/dictionaries-common dir.
           --triggered      Run all the code instead of trying to enable
                            update-default-ispell trigger
