       glib-compile-schemas - GSettings schema compiler

       glib-compile-schemas [OPTION...] {DIRECTORY}

       glib-compile-schemas compiles all the GSettings XML schema files in
       DIRECTORY into a binary file with the name gschemas.compiled that can
       be used by GSettings. The XML schema files must have the filename
       extension .gschema.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file
       format, see the GSettings documentation.

       At runtime, GSettings looks for schemas in the glib-2.0/schemas
       subdirectories of all directories specified in the XDG_DATA_DIRS
       environment variable. The usual location to install schema files is

       In addition to schema files, glib-compile-schemas reads 'vendor
       override' files, which are key files that can override default values
       for keys in the schemas. The group names in the key files are the
       schema id, and the values are written in serialized GVariant form.
       Vendor override files must have the filename extension

       By convention, vendor override files begin with nn_ where nn is a
       number from 00 to 99. Higher numbered files have higher priority (eg:
       if the same override is made in a file numbered 10 and then again in a
       file numbered 20, the override from 20 will take precedence).

	   Store gschemas.compiled in the TARGET directory instead of

	   Don't write gschemas.compiled. This option can be used to check
	   .gschema.xml sources for errors.

	   Do not enforce restrictions on key names. Note that this option is
	   purely to facility the transition from GConf, and will be removed
	   at some time in the future.
