So the second dig is always adding one hop to the local database_one, that
works (I assume the local hops to local files/dirs that were already indexed
pose no problems*). Do I have to mess with htdig-dbgen? That file makes just
about 0 sense to me.

Watching dig I seem to remember a long run of *'s (I ran one search script that
indexed these as separate URL's)

Pipes on both sides, no spaces, one URL per record/line. I could create a file,
w/ just the URL's and add in the spaces, from the db...OT newbie question,
could I put that Perl script in cron?
