NAME

htsearch - create document index and word database for the ht://Dig search engine  

SYNOPSIS

htsearch [options] [query_string]  

DESCRIPTION

Htsearch is used to search in de databases created by htdig for content. is the actual search engine of the htdig search system. It is a CGI program that is expected to be invoked by an HTML form. It will accept both the GET and POST methods of passing data to the CGI program.  

OPTIONS

query_string
A CGI-style query string can be given as a single argument, and is only used if the REQUEST_METHOD environment variable is not set. If no query_string is given, and REQUEST_METHOD is not set, htsearch will prompt for the query.
-c configfile
Use the specified configfile instead of the default (for security reasons this option is only available when htsearch is used on the commandline).
-v -d
Run in verbose mode. This increases the verbosity of the program. Using more than 2 is probably only useful for debugging purposes. The default verbose mode gives a progress on what it is doing and where it is.
