       htpurge -  remove unused documents from the database (general maintenance 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 recommended 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 specified  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 purposes. The default verbose mode  (using  only
              one -v) gives a nice progress report while digging.


              The default configuration file.
