NAME
       htfuzzy	-  fuzzy  command-line	search utility for the ht://Dig search
       engine

SYNOPSIS
       htfuzzy [-c configfile] [-v] algorithm [options]

DESCRIPTION
       Description to follow here

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

       -v     Verbose mode , -vvv
	       etc ). Specifying more than two v's is probably only useful for
	      debugging purposes.

Supported Algorithms
       Different algoritms are supported for searching:
	      soundex  Creates	a slightly modified soundex key database. Dif-
	      ferences with the standard soundex algorithm  are:  Keys	are  6
	      digits  and  the	first letter is also encoded.	     metaphone
	      Creates a metaphone key database. This algorithm	is  more  spe-
	      cific  to	 English,  but	will  get  fewer  "weird" matches than
	      the soundex algorithm.

	      accents (No description of the algorithm at the moment)

	      endings Creates  two  databases  which  can  be  used  to	 match
	      common  word endings. The creation of these databases requires a
	      list of affix rules and a	 dictionary  which  uses  those	 affix
	      rules. The format of the affix  rules and	 dictionary  files are
	      the ones used by the ispell program. Included with the distribu-
	      tion  are the affix rules for English and a fairly small English
	      dictionary.  Other languages can be supported  by	 getting   the
	      appropriate  affix  rules	 and dictionaries. These are available
	      for many languages; check the ispell  distribu-  tion  for  more
	      details.

	      synonyms	Creates	 a  database of synonyms for words. It reads a
	      text database of synonyms and creates a  database	 that htsearch
	      can   then use. Each line of the text database consists of words
	      where the first word will have the other words on that  line  as
	      synonyms.


Notes on searching
       Please  consult	specialised  literature	 to find out how the different
       algorithms work or simply try another
	      search stragegy you do not get the intended search results.
