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

     NAME
          update-default-wordlist - update default wordlist

     SYNOPSIS
           update-default-wordlist [--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 wordlist package
          postinst, from select-default-wordlist 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-wordlist trigger is enabled for later run.

          With the --skip-symlinks option the symlinks setting is
          skipped.

          When run normally (from the command line or with --trigger)
          this script rebuilds the info at
          /var/cache/dictionaries-common/wordlist.db after files under
          /var/lib/dictionaries-common/wordlist, 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/share/dict/.

     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-wordlist trigger
