       htsearch [options] [query_string]

       Htsearch is used to search in de databases created by  htdig  for  con-
       tent.   is the actual search engine of the htdig search system. It is a
       CGI program that is expected to be invoked by an	 HTML  form.  It  will
       accept  both  the  GET and POST methods of passing data to the CGI pro-

	      A CGI-style query string can be given as a single argument,  and
	      is  only	used if the REQUEST_METHOD environment variable is not
	      set.  If no query_string is given,  and  REQUEST_METHOD  is  not
	      set, htsearch will prompt for the query.

       -c configfile
	      Use  the	specified configfile instead of the default (for secu-
	      rity reasons this option is only available when htsearch is used
	      on the commandline).

       -v -d  Run  in  verbose mode.  This increases the verbosity of the pro-
	      gram.  Using more than 2 is probably only useful	for  debugging
	      purposes.	  The default verbose mode gives a progress on what it
	      is doing and where it is.

	      The default configuration file.

	      The default search results header file

	      The default search results footer file

	      header and footer together in one file

	      The default 'no matches found' HTML file

	      The default file that explains boolean expression syntax errors
