Verifies the integrity of a library.

  • Each .gol file maintains a rollback journal whenever it is modified, which enables it to return to a consistent state after a process crashes or power is lost. If the .journal is moved or deleted, its corresponding library may become corrupt.


gol check <gol-file> [<options>]  


-q, --quiet

Displays only minimal output. Apart from error messages, only minimal progress updates are written to stderr.

-s, --silent

No output at all is written to stderr, not even error messages. (Whether a command succeeded or failed can only be ascertained via the status code returned by the process).

-v, --verbose

Writes extra information to stderr.
