       htdump - write out an ASCII-text version of the document database

       htdump [options]

       Htdump writes out an ASCII-text version of the document database in the
       same form as the -t option of htdig.

       -a     Use alternate work files. Tells htdump to append .work to	 data-
	      base files, allowing it to operate on a second set of databases.

       -c configfile
	      Use the specified configfile instead of the default.

       -v     Verbose mode. This doesn't have much effect.

File Formats
       Document Database
	      Each  line in the file starts with the document id followed by a
	      list of fieldname : value separated by tabs. The	fields	always
	      appear in the order listed below:

       u      URL

       t      Title

       a      State (0 = normal, 1 = not found, 2 = not indexed, 3 = obsolete)

       m      Last modification time as reported by the server

       s      Size in bytes

       H      Excerpt

       h      Meta description

       l      Time of last retrieval

       L      Count of the links in the document (outgoing links)

       b      Count of the links to the document (incoming links or backlinks)

       c      HopCount of this document

       g      Signature of the document used for duplicate-detection

       e      E-mail address to use for a notification message from htnotify

       n      Date to send out a notification e-mail message

       S      Subject for a notification e-mail message

       d      The   text   of  links  pointing	to  this  document.  (e.g.  <a

       A      Anchors in the document (i.e. <A NAME=...)

       Word Database
	      While htdump and	htload	don't  deal  with  the	word  database
	      directly, it's worth mentioning it here because you need to deal
	      with it when copying the ASCII  databases	 from  one  system  to
	      another.	The initial word database produced by htdig is already
	      in ASCII format, and a binary  version  of  it  is  produced  by
	      htmerge,	for  use by htsearch. So, when you copy over the ASCII
	      version of the document database produced by htdump, you need to
	      copy  over  the  wordlist	 as  well, then run htload to make the
	      binary document database on the target system, followed by  run-
	      ning htmerge to make the word index.

       Each line in the word list file starts with the word
	      followed	by  a list of fieldname : value separated by tabs. The
	      fields always appear in the order listed below,  with  the  last
	      two being optional:

       i      Document ID

       l      Location of word in document (1 to 1000)

       w      Weight of word based on scoring factors

       c      Count of word's appearances in document, if more than 1

       a      Anchor number if word occurred after a named anchor

	      The default configuration file.

	      The default ASCII document database file.

	      The default ASCII word database file.
