NAME

       htsearch - create document index and word database for the ht://Dig search engine

SYNOPSIS

       htsearch [options] [query_string]

DESCRIPTION

       Htsearch  is  used to sift through the  databases created by htdig for content.  It 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 program.

OPTIONS

       query_string
              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  security  reasons  this
              option is only available when htsearch is used on the command line).

       -v -d  Run in verbose mode.  This increases the verbosity of the program.  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.

FILES

       /etc/htdig/htdig.conf
              The default configuration file.

              The default search results header file

       /etc/htdig/footer.html

       /etc/htdig/wrapper.html
              The  default  search  results  wrapper  file,  that  contains the header and footer
              together in one file

       /etc/htdig/nomatch.html
              The default 'no matches found' HTML file
