htdig-3.1.6: description + notes

The ht://Dig system is a complete world wide web indexing and searching system for a small domain or intranet. This system is not meant to replace the need for powerful internet-wide search systems like Lycos, Infoseek, Webcrawler and AltaVista. Instead it is meant to cover the search needs for a single company, campus, or even a particular sub section of a web site.

As opposed to some WAIS-based or web-server based search engines, ht://Dig can span several web servers at a site. The type of these different web servers doesn't matter as long as they understand the HTTP 1.0 protocol.

Before you can start searching, you will need to create a search database. A sample script to do this has been installed as /usr/freeware/bin/rundig. This build has been configured to use the following directories by default:
