htpurge [-][-a][-c configfile][-u][-v]

as bad URLs, unretrieved URLs, obsolete documents, etc. It is recom-

- Take URL list from standard input (rather than specified with
-u). Format of input file is one URL per line. -a Use alternate
work files. Tells htpurge 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 run.
Use the specified configfile instead of the default.
-u URL Add this URL to the list of documents to remove. Must be speci-
fied multiple times if more than one URL are to be removed.
Should nor be used together with -.
-v Verbose mode. This increases the verbosity of the program.
Using more than 2 is probably only useful for debugging pur-
poses. The default verbose mode (using only one -v) gives a nice
progress report while digging.
The default configuration file.
