GTK-UPDATE-ICON-C(1) User Commands GTK-UPDATE-ICON-C(1)NAME
gtk-update-icon-cache - Icon theme caching utility
gtk-update-icon-cache [--force] [--ignore-theme-index] [--index-only]
[--source NAME] [--quiet] [--validate] PATH
gtk-update-icon-cache creates mmapable cache files for icon themes.
It expects to be given the PATH to a icon theme directory containing an
index.theme, e.g. /usr/share/icons/hicolor, and writes a
icon-theme.cache containing cached information about the icons in the
directory tree below the given directory.
GTK+ can use the cache files created by gtk-update-icon-cache to avoid
a lot of system call and disk seek overhead when the application
starts. Since the format of the cache files allows them to be mmaped
shared between multiple applications, the overall memory consumption is
reduced as well.
Overwrite an existing cache file even if it appears to be uptodate.
Don't check for the existence of index.theme in the icon theme
directory. Without this option, gtk-update-icon-cache refuses to
create an icon cache in a directory which does not appear to be the
toplevel directory of an icon theme.
Don't include image data in the cache.
Output a C header file declaring a constant NAME with the contents
of the icon cache.
Turn off verbose output.
Validate existing icon cache.
