       htpurge	-  remove unused odocuments from the database (general mainte-
       nance script)

       htpurge [-][-a][-c configfile][-u][-v]

       Htpurge functions to remove specified URLs from the databases  as  well
       as  bad	URLs,  unretrieved URLs, obsolete documents, etc. It is recom-
       mended that htpurge be run after htdig to clean out  any	 documents  of
       this sort.


       -      Take  URL	 list  from standard input (rather than specified with
	      -u). Format of input file is one URL per line.  -a Use alternate
	      work  files.  Tells  htpurge  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 run.

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

       -u URL Add  this URL to the list of documents to remove. Must be speci-
	      fied multiple times if more than one  URL	 are  to  be  removed.
	      Should nor be used together with -.

       -v     Verbose  mode.  This  increases  the  verbosity  of the program.
	      Using more than 2 is probably only  useful  for  debugging  pur-
	      poses. The default verbose mode (using only one -v) gives a nice
	      progress report while digging.

	      The default configuration file.
