Hello Andrew,

in my search for configuring htdig to be used with full dutch
sentences, I started to wonder why there was no way to set
[No title] to another string. So I took the liberty to dig in
the sources and patched the following files;


I added to the first file a no_title_text config option (note also
that there are TWO page_list_header in the this file, so I removed
the first). Here is the patch for the first file:

NOTE: you see: TWO times page_list_header

The second patch is to make some routine in Display.cc actualy use the

You see: TITLE gets it's info from the config struct if the title is

I hope these patches are included in the next version. If you think
they should be on the htdig mailing list (please confirm if they are
working, I wouldn't dear to destroy anyone's htdig source), mail me

In my htdig.conf file, I added a line:

no_title_text: [Geen titel]

which is of course the dutch version of No title. It seems to be
working here....
