       htload - reads in an ASCII-text version of the document database


       htload [options]


       Htload   reads  in  an ASCII-text version of the document database in the same form as the
       -t  option  of  htdig  and  htdump. Note that this will overwrite data in your  databases,
       so this should be used with great care.


       -a     Use  alternate work files. Tells htload to append .work to database files, allowing
              it to operate on a second set of databases.

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

       -i     Initial.  Do  not use any old databases. This is accomplished by first erasing  the

       -v     Verbose mode. This doesn't have much effect.

File Formats

       Document Database
              Each line in the file starts with the document id followed by a list of fieldname :
              value separated by tabs. The fields always appear in the order listed below:

       u      URL

       t      Title

       a      State (0 = normal, 1 = not found, 2 = not indexed, 3 = obsolete)

       m      Last modification time as reported by the server

       s      Size in bytes

       H      Excerpt

       h      Meta description

       l      Time of last retrieval

       L      Count of the links in the document (outgoing links)

       b      Count of the links to the document (incoming links or backlinks)

       c      HopCount of this document

       g      Signature of the document used for duplicate-detection

       e      E-mail address to use for a notification message from htnotify

       n      Date to send out a notification e-mail message

       S      Subject for a notification e-mail message

       d      The    text    of    links    pointing    to    this     document.     (e.g.     <a

       A      Anchors in the document (i.e. <A NAME=...)

       Word Database
              While  htdump  and  htload  don't  deal with the word database directly, it's worth
              mentioning it here because you  need  to  deal  with  it  when  copying  the  ASCII
              databases  from  one system to another. The initial word database produced by htdig
              is already in ASCII format, and a binary version of it is produced by htmerge,  for
              use  by htsearch. So, when you copy over the ASCII version of the document database
              produced by htdump, you need to copy over the wordlist as well, then run htload  to
              make the binary document database on the target system, followed by running htmerge
              to make the word index.

       Each line in the word list file starts with the word
              followed by a list of fieldname : value separated by tabs. The fields always appear
              in the order listed below, with the last two being optional:

       i      Document ID

       l      Location of word in document (1 to 1000)

       w      Weight of word based on scoring factors

       c      Count of word's appearances in document, if more than 1

       a      Anchor number if word occurred after a named anchor


              The default configuration file.

              The default ASCII document database file.

              The default ASCII word database file.
