       htpurge   -    remove  unused  documents  from  the  database  (general
       maintenance script)


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


       Htpurge functions to remove specified URLs from the databases  as  well
       as   bad  URLs,  unretrieved  URLs,  obsolete  documents,  etc.  It  is
       recommended that htpurge be run after htdig to clean out any  documents
       of this sort.


       -      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.

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

       -u URL Add  this  URL  to  the  list  of  documents  to remove. Must be
              specified 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
              purposes.  The  default verbose mode (using only one -v) gives a
              nice progress report while digging.


              The default configuration file.


       Please  refer  to  the  HTML   pages   (in   the   htdig-doc   package)
       /usr/share/doc/htdig-doc/html/index.html    and    the   manual   pages
       htdigconfig(8) , htdig(1) and htmerge(1) for a detailed description  of
       ht://Dig and its commands.
