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


       htmerge [options]


       Htmerge  is  used  to  create  a document index and word database from the files that were
       created by htdig. These databases  are  then  used  by  htsearch  to  perform  the  actual


       -a     Use  alternate work files. Tells htdig 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 indexing run.

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

       -d     Prevent the document index from being created.

       -s     Print statistics about the document and word databases after htmerge has finished.

       -v     Run  in verbose mode. This will provide some hints as to the progress of the merge.
              This can be useful when running htmerge interactively since some parts  (especially
              the word database creation) can take a very long time.

       -w     Prevent the word database from being created.


       TMPDIR In  addition  to  the command line options, the environment variable TMPDIR will be
              used to designate the directory where intermediate  files  are  stored  during  the
              sorting process.
