make_services - generate GNUstep services info


make_services [--test filename ] [--verbose|--quiet]


make_services builds a validated cache of service information for use by programs that
want to access the GNUstep services facility. Additionally, it builds a list of
applications and service bundles found in the standard directories. This cache is usually
stored in the file named .GNUstepServices in the user's GNUstep directory.

Most commonly, make_services is called from within the GNUstep.sh or GNUstep.csh script to
update the service information everytime the GNUstep environmet is set up, i.e. in a
login script. But of course it is possible to run make_services from the command line
whenever you wish, for example after having installed a new application or service.

The Services menu in an application's mainmenu is usually updated automatically. However,
it may be neccessary to close an open or torn off menu for the changes to appear. Also,
the workspace manager may have to be closed and restarted for file association changes to
take effect.


--test filename
check that property list filename contains a valid service information.

suppress warnings (not recommended but useful in login scripts).

give verbose output.

--help show small help screen.


Simply rebuild the cache of service information:


Check whether the file ServiceInfo.plist contains a valid service description:

make_services --test ServiceInfo.plist


Giving both --quiet and --verbose on the command line will result in verbose output,
ignoring the --quiet argument.

Use make_services online using onworks.net services
