This patch requires Pasi Eronen's Patches for local home directories
for 3.07 which was not carried over to 3.08b:

Subject: htdig: Patches for local home directories


Few days ago, I posted patches for local filesystem access
to HTDig. Since then, I've received a request for supporting
user home directory URLs (like,
and made a patch for that, too.

The syntax of the new configuration file option is:

  local_user_urls: prefix1=[path1],dir1 ...

If you leave the "path" part out, it looks up the user's home
directory in /etc/passwd (or NIS or whatever). For example,
to map "" to
"/home/joe/www/foo/bar.html" you would say:


The default behaviour of many WWW servers is approximately:


(NOTE: All the slashes in these examples are REQUIRED!)

This patch is a bit large, so I won't post it here. Instead,
it's available from <>. I'm not
indexing any home directories myself, so comments are very
welcome. (Tip: you can see what local filename it's trying
to use if you specify options '-v -v' to htdig.)

Thanks to Geoff Hutchison for testing this patch.

Best regards,
