htmake - create GLOBAL hypertext source searchable by gsearch.cgi
htmake [htags options] [--url=base-url] [destdir]
htmake is a wrapper script that creates searchable hypertext from program source code and records information into a path database needed for a centralised search mechanism. Prior to using this command you must have installed gsearch.cgi using the htconfig -I option and configured the location of the path database in htmake.conf Before you can create the hypertext source you need to execute gtags(1) from the root directory of the source tree. htmake is then called from the same place. htmake uses htags(1) to create the hypertext with a unique id and htconfig(1) to make the required entries in the path database.
The following options will be passed to htags(1) if used. -a Make an alphabetical function index. -c Compress html. Use gzip(1) with .ghtml suffix. -C Compress html. Use gzip(1) with .html.gz suffix. -d tagdir, --tags=gtagsdbpath Specifies the directory in which GTAGS and GRTAGS exist. The default is the current directory. -F Use frames for definition index, file index and main view. -l Make a name tag for each line of hypertext created. -n Print out the line numbers. -t title The title of this hypertext. Defaults to the last component of the current path. --action=cgi-url Specify the location search queries are submitted to. Defaults to the value set in htmake.conf or to http://localhost/cgi-bin/gsearch.cgi The remaining options are more general or are passed to htconfig(1). --url=base-url the base url for your new hypertext source. For best results always use absolute url's here. eg. http://host/~user/mysource It defaults to file:/destdir destdir The directory in which hypertext is generated. The default is ./HTML -v, --verbose Activate the inbuilt screen saver. Give your phosphors a workout.
$ cd /usr/src/myprog $ gtags $ htmake $ cd /usr/src/myprog $ gtags -c $ htmake -c --url=http://host/~user/prog/HTML \ /home/user/public_html/prog

As a wrapper htmake gets to inherit bugs from other software too. Isn't life fun. This is alpha software - expect anything!
