Appears that, in real world, htsearch 3.1.5 will from time to time loop; due
basically to configuration file not set up to deal with actual conditions at
searched web site(s).

Does Unix have any ability to limit elapsed time (and/or disk space) used by
an attempt to run htsearch? Hopefully, giving the ability to obtain/test a
return code, etc.

P.S. If there's a good FAQ available for this type of Unix question, please
advise . .
