[Mediawiki-l] "Refreshing" a category page via MediaWikiprogram calls

I know that when I do it manually all have to do is null-edit the page.

I will check out the refreshLinks.php; I may well be able to use that. 

In seems to me though that "refreshLinks.php" is a batch approach.  If I 
know the actual page which needs the category links fixing is there though a 
direct function I can call?  I see the "fixLinksFromArticle" in 
"refreshLinks.inc".  This I suppose would do it.  But is this the normal way 
that a page during a manual null-edit would ensure that it's links are up to 
date?  If not, what functions do the updating?
