 NAME
      gtk-update-icon-cache - Icon theme caching utility

 SYNOPSIS
      gtk-update-icon-cache [--force] [--ignore-theme-index] [--index-only]
                            [--source [name]] [--quiet] [--validate]
                            {iconpath}

 DESCRIPTION
      gtk-update-icon-cache creates mmap()able 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 mmap()ed
      shared between multiple applications, the overall memory consumption
      is reduced as well.

 OPTIONS
      --force, -f
          Overwrite an existing cache file even if it appears to be
          uptodate.

      --ignore-theme-index, -t
          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.

      --index-only, -i
          Don't include image data in the cache.

      --source, -c
          Output a C header file declaring a constant name with the contents
          of the icon cache.

      --quiet, -q
          Turn off verbose output.

      --validate, -v
          Validate existing icon cache.

 BUGS
      None known yet.
