UPDATE-FMTUTIL(8)           System Manager's Manual          UPDATE-FMTUTIL(8)



NAME
       update-fmtutil  -  shell  script to generate /var/lib/texmf/web2c/fmtu-
       til.cnf

SYNOPSIS
       update-fmtutil [options]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the  update-fmtutil  command.   This
       manual  page  was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because
       the original script was designed for Debian packaging system.

       update-fmtutil is a shell script to generate /var/lib/texmf/web2c/fmtu-
       til.cnf from files in /etc/texmf/fmt.d/*.cnf

       The  main  tetex-bin provides 00tetex.cnf only and we assume that other
       TeX related packages should provide files with necessary contents.  The
       two  digit  numeral determines the order in which update-fmtutil read a
       file.

       A user who wants to customize  /var/lib/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf  should
       add,  for  example,  22myfmt.cnf  in /etc/texmf/fmt.d/ and run 'update-
       fmtutil'.

OPTIONS
       -v     Show verbose messages.
