This is correct. Ht://Dig follows links through documents, so unless
you have some sort of directory index, it won't be able to do this.
Of course, you can write a simple script and either use that as an
index, or simply as a setting for your start_url setting.
The 3.2 branch of the code currently supports file:// URLs and it has
been suggested that this code could generate a list of files for
directory URLs, but no one has stepped forward to implement this
feature. Help is, of course, always welcome.
