ibus-table-createdb - Man Page

create ibus-table database from table source


ibus-table-createdb [ [ -n name ]  [ --name name ] ]  [ [ -s source ]  [ --source source ] ]  [ [ -e extra ]  [ --extra extra ] ]  [ [ -p pinyin ]  [ --pinyin pinyin ] ]  [ -o ]  [ --no-create-index ]  [ -i ]  [ --create-index-only ]  [ -d ]  [ --debug ]


ibus-table-createdb creates a database for ibus-table from a source table.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.


database-file specifies the file name for the binary database for the IME. The default is ''. If the file name of the database is not specified, the file name of the source file before the first '.' will be appended with '.db' and that will be used as the file name of the database.


source-file specifies the file which contains the source of the IME. The default is ''.


extra-words-file specifies the file name for the extra words for the IME. The default is ''.


pinyin-file specifies the source file for the pinyin. The default is '/usr/share/ibus-table/data/pinyin_table.txt.bz2'.


Do not create an index for a database (Only for distribution purposes, a normal user should not use this flag!)


Only create an index for an existing database. Specifying the file name of the binary database with the -n or --name option is required when this option is used.


Print extra debug messages.
