Tripwire: Commonly used commands

I can never remember what I use for lots of commands, so I just write them here:

Creating a new database tripwire { -m i | --init }
Running an Integrity check tripwire { -m c | --check }
Running an Integrity check, with results sent by e-mail tripwire { -m c | --check } -M
Updating the database after an integrity check tripwire { -m u | --update }

All of those were taken from the TripWire v2.21 Guide, section 3.2. The 'update' one is a little more tricky, you should actually run it and give the database you want to update as a paramater. Like this (if run from the 'bin' for TSS):

./tripwire --update -d ../db/spinner.twd
