NAME
       xapian-compact - Compact a database, or merge and compact several

SYNOPSIS
       xapian-compact [OPTIONS] SOURCE_DATABASE... DESTINATION_DATABASE

DESCRIPTION
       xapian-compact - Compact a database, or merge and compact several

OPTIONS
       -b, --blocksize=B
              Set  the blocksize in bytes (e.g. 4096) or K (e.g. 4K) (must
              be between 2K and 64K and a power of 2, default 8K)

       -n, --no-full
              Disable full compaction

       -F, --fuller
              Enable fuller compaction (not recommended  if  you  plan  to
              update the compacted database)

       -m, --multipass
              If  merging  more  than  3 databases, merge the postlists in
              multiple passes (which is generally faster but requires more
              disk space for temporary files)

       --no-renumber
              Preserve  the  numbering of document ids (useful if you have
              external references to them,  or  have  set  them  to  match
              unique  ids from an external source).  Currently this option
              is only supported when merging databases if they  have  dis-
              joint ranges of used document ids

       -s, --single-file
              Produce a single file database (not supported for chert)

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
