htpurge - remove unused documents from the database (general
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.
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.
