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