htfuzzy  -  fuzzy  command-line  search utility for the ht://Dig search


   htfuzzy [-c configfile] [-v] algorithm [options]


   Description to follow here


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

   -v     Verbose mode Use this to get more verbose output  while  running
          htfuzzy. More than one v can be specified (ie.  -vv , -vvv
           etc ). Specifying more than two v's is probably only useful for
          debugging purposes.

Supported Algorithms

   Different algorithms are supported for searching:
          soundex Creates   a  slightly  modified  soundex  key  database.
          Differences  with the standard soundex algorithm are: Keys are 6
          digits and the first letter is also  encoded.          metaphone
          Creates  a  metaphone  key  database.  This  algorithm  is  more
          specific to English, but  will  get  fewer  "weird" matches than
          the soundex algorithm.

          accents (No description of the algorithm at the moment)

          endings  Creates  two  databases  which  can  be  used  to match
          common word endings. The creation of these databases requires  a
          list  of  affix  rules  and  a dictionary which uses those affix
          rules. The format of the affix  rules and  dictionary  files are
          the   ones  used  by  the  ispell  program.  Included  with  the
          distribution are the affix rules for English and a fairly  small
          English  dictionary.   Other  languages  can  be  supported   by
          getting  the appropriate affix rules and dictionaries. These are
          available  for many languages; check the ispell distribution for
          more details.

          synonyms Creates a database of synonyms for words.  It  reads  a
          text database of synonyms and creates a  database  that htsearch
          can  then use. Each line of the text database consists of  words
          where  the  first word will have the other words on that line as

Notes on searching
