Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.3: +14 -3 lines

Support leading, trailing and double colons in MANPATH to prepend,
append or insert the man.conf(5) default path; compatible with GNU
manpath(1), implementation by kristaps@, heavily tweaked by schwarze@.

Updates to MANPATH documentation applied to whatis.1, apropos.1, and
catman.8 also.

.It Fl f
Force an update to all files.
.It Fl v
Print each file being updated.
.It Fl C Ar file
Specify an alternative configuration
.Ar file
in
.Xr man.conf 5
format.

Use the colon-separated path instead of the default list of paths
searched for
.Xr mandocdb 8
databases.
Invalid paths, or paths without manual databases, are ignored.
.It Fl m Ar manpath
Prepend the colon-separated paths to the list of paths searched
for
.Xr mandocdb 8
databases.
Invalid paths, or paths without manual databases, are ignored.
.It Fl o Ar path
Update into the directory tree under

.El
.Pp
By default,
.Nm
searches for
.Xr mandocdb 8
databases in the default paths stipulated by
.Xr man 1
and updates the cache in
.Pa /var/www/cache/man.cgi .
.Pp
An update occurs when a
.Xr mandocdb 8
database is older than the cached copy.
Cached manual pages are only updated if older than the master copy.
If
.Fl f
is specified, all files are updated.
.Sh ENVIRONMENT
.Bl -tag -width Ds
.It Ev MANPATH
Colon-separated paths modifying the default list of paths searched for
manual databases.
Invalid paths, or paths without manual databases, are ignored.
Overridden by
.Fl M .
If
.Ev MANPATH
begins with a
.Sq \&: ,
it is appended to the default list;
else if it ends with
.Sq \&: ,
it is prepended to the default list; else if it contains
.Sq \&:: ,
the default list is inserted between the colons.
If none of these conditions are met, it overrides the default list.
