       Sphinx is a collection of programs that aim  to  provide  high  quality
       fulltext  search.  indexer  fetches  all  documents from the configured
       sources and creates the index data files.

       This manual page was written for the Debian  distribution  because  the
       original  program  does  not  have  a  manual  page.   Instead,  it has
       documentation in HTML format, see below.


       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included  below.   For   a   complete   description,   see   the   HTML

       --config  Specify an alternate configuration file to use.

       --all     Causes  indexer  to  (re-)index  all  indexes, instead of the
                 specified ones.

       --quiet   Suppress all non-error output.

                 Suppress progress information.

       -h           --help
                 Show summary of options.

       --rotate  Writes index data files as files and sends a SIGHUP
                 to searchd, causing it to rotate the index files.


       search (1), searchd (1).

       Sphinx  and  it’s  programs are documented fully by the Spinx reference
       manual available in /usr/share/doc/sphinxsearch.
