       htdump -	write out an ASCII-text	version	of the document	database

       htdump [options]

       Htdump writes out an ASCII-text version of the document database	in the
       same form as the	-t option of htdig.

       -a     Use alternate work files.	Tells htdump to	append .work to	 data-
	      base files, allowing it to operate on a second set of databases.

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

       -v     Verbose mode. This doesn't have much effect.

File Formats
       Document	Database
	      Each  line in the	file starts with the document id followed by a
	      list of fieldname	: value	separated by tabs. The	fields	always
	      appear in	the order listed below:

       u      URL

       t      Title

       a      State (0 = normal, 1 = not found,	2 = not	indexed, 3 = obsolete)

       m      Last modification	time as	reported by the	server

       s      Size in bytes

       H      Excerpt

       h      Meta description

       l      Time of last retrieval

       L      Count of the links in the	document (outgoing links)

       b      Count of the links to the	document (incoming links or backlinks)

       c      HopCount of this document

       g      Signature	of the document	used for duplicate-detection

       e      E-mail address to	use for	a notification message from htnotify

       n      Date to send out a notification e-mail message

       S      Subject for a notification e-mail	message

       d      The   text   of  links  pointing	to  this  document.  (e.g.  <a

       A      Anchors in the document (i.e. <A NAME=...)

       Word Database
	      While htdump and htload don't deal with the  word	 database  di-
	      rectly,  it's  worth mentioning it here because you need to deal
	      with it when copying the ASCII databases from one	system to  an-
	      other. The initial word database produced	by htdig is already in
	      ASCII format, and	a binary version of it is produced by htmerge,
	      for use by htsearch. So, when you	copy over the ASCII version of
	      the document database produced by	htdump,	you need to copy  over
	      the  wordlist  as	well, then run htload to make the binary docu-
	      ment database on the target system, followed by running  htmerge
	      to make the word index.

       Each line in the	word list file starts with the word
	      followed	by  a list of fieldname	: value	separated by tabs. The
	      fields always appear in the order	listed below,  with  the  last
	      two being	optional:

       i      Document ID

       l      Location of word in document (1 to 1000)

       w      Weight of	word based on scoring factors

       c      Count of word's appearances in document, if more than 1

       a      Anchor number if word occurred after a named anchor

	      The default configuration	file.

	      The default ASCII	document database file.

	      The default ASCII	word database file.

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

       This manual page	was written by Stijn de	Bekker,	based on the HTML doc-
       umentation of ht://Dig.
