LOGICAL_WORDS for the ALL search = Littérature and francophone and virtuelle
LOGICAL_WORDS for the ANY search = Littérature or francophone or virtuelle

seems to be working properly... here's the output:

[ccouple1@tumbleweed bin]$ /home/httpd/cgi-bin/htsearch -c /usr/local/htdig/conf
/fr_test.conf -v
Enter value for words: Littérature francophone virtuelle
tempWords: 'littérature:0 francophone:0 virtuelle:0 '
Boolean: 'littérature:0 &:0 francophone:0 &:0 virtuelle:0 '
initial: ''
Fuzzy on: littérature
searchWords: 'littérature:0 '
Add: &
searchWords: 'littérature:0 &:0 '
Fuzzy on: francophone
searchWords: 'littérature:0 &:0 francophone:0 '
Add: &
searchWords: 'littérature:0 &:0 francophone:0 &:0 '
Fuzzy on: virtuelle
searchWords: 'littérature:0 &:0 francophone:0 &:0 virtuelle:0 '
LogicalWords: littérature and francophone and virtuelle
Pattern: littérature|francophone|virtuelle
