If by "incremental" you mean creating an index where files newer than N
are indexed, see the -N option.
You can merge two or more indexes with the -M option.
What swish does NOT support, though it has often been asked for, is the
kind of "incremental" indexing where an existing index is modified
(updated with new files, non-existent files removed, etc.). You use the
-N (or other scheme of your choosing) and then the -M option to merge.
For example, you might create a weekly index of everything, then a daily
index of only files that have changed since the master index was last
updated. You could then merge the two indexes.
See the -N option for a better (more complete) example:
