what about *reading* the man page ... I gave you already the link.
THere is the option to 
	tlgmr generate
           tells tlmgr to run necessary programs after config files have been
           regenerated. These are: "fmtutil-sys --all" after "generate
           fmtutil", "fmtutil-sys --byhyphen .../language.dat" after "generate
           language.dat", and "fmtutil-sys --byhyphen .../language.def" after
           "generate language.def".

           These subsequent calls cause the newly-generated files to actually
           take effect.  This is not done by default since those calls are
           lengthy processes and one might want to made several related
           changes in succession before invoking these programs.

Yes, typo, fixed in svn. Thanks.

Removing the dots will bring us an email from a certain P.T. complaining
about improper use of English.

Windows problem, we output it on one line.
