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 searched.


   -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.
