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


       htsearch [options] [query_string]


       Htsearch is used to search in de databases created by  htdig  for  con-
       tent.   is the actual search engine of the htdig search system. It is a
       CGI program that is expected to be invoked by an  HTML  form.  It  will
       accept  both  the  GET and POST methods of passing data to the CGI pro-


              A CGI-style query string can be given as a single argument,  and
              is  only  used if the REQUEST_METHOD environment variable is not
              set.  If no query_string is given,  and  REQUEST_METHOD  is  not
              set, htsearch will prompt for the query.

       -c configfile
              Use  the  specified configfile instead of the default (for secu-
              rity reasons this option is only available when htsearch is used
              on the commandline).

       -v -d  Run  in  verbose mode.  This increases the verbosity of the pro-
              gram.  Using more than 2 is probably only useful  for  debugging
              purposes.   The default verbose mode gives a progress on what it
              is doing and where it is.
