htdig: Stoping the dig

    I have basically two questions:

1 - What happens if I abort the digging in the middle? I lose what have
been done or I can just stop and then restart later?

2 - Can I start a merge while it's digging?

    I start the dig of about 450,000 documents using a P-100 with 32Meg
of RAM. With this short amount of memory, my machine started to swap
like crazy! It is using more than 100Meg of swap. It is in the dig
process for 2 days and I think that it will be still digging for the
next 3 or 4 days. I would like to stop the process if I don't lose what
have been done, to start again later.

    Any sugestions?
