Thanks, Geoff,

I rebuilt the database, synonyms.db, with htdig.conf. However, I still has the
same problem as follows:
$ htsearch.cgi
Enter value for words: dial
Segmentation fault(coredump)

Now the synonyms.db seems ok to me. But the problem still exists. We installed
htdig on IBM AIX 4.2. How can I change the configuration file to produce the
correct synonyms.db?

I run ' htfuzzy endings' to build another dababase. Then I run htserach.cgi
with keyword 'dial'. Finally, I got the output.

Thanks for the help.
