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.
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
