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


       htsearch [options] [query_string]


       Htsearch is used to sift through the  databases created  by  htdig  for
       content.  It 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


              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
              security reasons this option is only available when htsearch  is
              used on the command line).

       -v -d  Run  in  verbose  mode.   This  increases  the  verbosity of the
              program.   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.


              The default configuration file.

              The default search results header file

              The default search results footer file

              The default search  results  wrapper  file,  that  contains  the
              header and footer together in one file

              The default ’no matches found’ HTML file

              The default file that explains boolean expression syntax errors
