NAME
     xsindex --	Create a simple	index file for a directory

SYNOPSIS
     xsindex [-b] [-f] [-m mimefile] [-s] [-t mimetype]	[-x pattern] title

DESCRIPTION
     `xsindex' is a program that will create a nice index page for a direc-
     tory. What	it does	is make	a listing of all files in the current direc-
     tory (except for special files, like `.', `.xsauth', etc) and create a
     table-like	overview of them. Included with	every file is the type of that
     file and its size.

     The program has a number of options:

     -b	     If	you activate this option, `..' will not	be listed in the in-
	     dex.  This	is useful if `..' has no meaning in that directory.

     -f	     This option disabled the `Are you sure you	want to	overwrite?'
	     prompt.

     -m	mimefile
	     This option allows	you to specify a non-standard mime index file.
	     This allows you to	specify, for example, different	icon images
	     for file types.

     -s	     Disable the display of file sizes.

     -t	mimetype
	     This option allows	you to specify how file	types are displayed.
	     The mimetype can be either	1 (default) show full mime types such
	     as	`image/jpeg', 2	show a descriptive text	such as	`JPEG image'
	     (see the -m option) or 3 disable display of the file type.

     -x	pattern	[-x pattern ...]
	     Give a filename, or shell file-matching pattern, for the file(s)
	     that should not be	included in the	listing. The -x	option may be
	     included multiple times to	exclude	multiple files and/or file
	     patterns.

     The title is used as the title of the document that will be created.  Use
     a descriptive title!

FILES
     mime.index
	     Global configuration file containing information about common
	     file extensions and MIME information. Each	record (line) in this
	     file consists of 5	tab separated fields:
		   mime	type
		   file	extension
		   icon	file (relative to HtmlDir)
		   short type name
		   full	type name

     index.html
	     HTML file that will be automatically generated by xsindex(1).
	     The contents of this file will be displayed whenever a client re-
	     quests the	directory path.

EXAMPLES
	   $ xsindex -t	2 "Directory of	/pub/ftp"
