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

       htmerge [options]

       Htmerge is used to create a document index and word database  from  the
       files  that  were  created  by  htdig. These databases are then used by
       htsearch to perform the actual searched.

       -a     Use alternate work files. Tells htdig to append .work  to	 data-
	      base  files,  causing a second copy of the database to be built.
	      This allows the original files to be used by htsearch during the
	      indexing run.

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

       -d     Prevent the document index from being created.

       -s     Print  statistics	 about	the  document and word databases after
	      htmerge has finished.

       -v     Run in verbose mode. This will provide  some  hints  as  to  the
	      progress	of  the merge. This can be useful when running htmerge
	      interactively since some parts  (especially  the	word  database
	      creation) can take a very long time.

       -w     Prevent the word database from being created.

       TMPDIR In  addition  to the command line options, the environment vari-
	      able TMPDIR will be used to designate the directory where inter-
	      mediate files are stored during the sorting process.

	      The default configuration file.
