is a tool designed for building static indexes outside of the Beagle daemon.
by hand is of use for those wishing to create and build static indexes used by
the Beagle daemon. The static indexes can be helpful in many cases but most
notably used as system-wide indexes shared by all users, and as a way for
system-administrators to run indexing on a central server in a network
will index the data specified by the path arguments and create an index
in the index_path directory. If a suitable index is found in the index
directory, it will automatically append data to the index if the file at hand
has been modified since it was last indexed. If it can't find a suitable index
(non-existant or version-mismatch) it will purge the directory recursively.
