Hi there

        I did an initial index of about 20 sites or so, and that went off
without a hitch. I then went to index somemore.

        In my rundig file I called htdig and htmerge like so:

$BINDIR/htdig -a -v -c /usr/local/www/htdig_bird/conf/htdig.conf
$BINDIR/htmerge -a -v -c /usr/local/www/htdig_bird/conf/htdig.conf

#this below is a stock bit from rundig and I would appreciate knowing
#what it does (I don't do shell yet)

case "$alt" in
-a)
  ( cd $DBDIR && test -f db.docdb.work &&
    for f in *.work
    do
        mv -f $f `basename $f .work`
    done ) ;;
esac

When it was done I ended up with a db directory that looks like this:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 9889792 Jun 15 20:06 db.docdb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 19276800 Jun 15 20:01 db.docdb.work
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 238592 Jun 15 20:06 db.docs.index
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 490496 Jun 15 20:01 db.docs.index.work
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 16555676 Jun 15 20:06 db.wordlist
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 27502344 Jun 15 20:01 db.wordlist.work
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 17430528 Jun 15 20:06 db.words.db
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 27430912 Jun 15 20:01 db.words.db.work

db.docdb, db.docs.index, db.wordlist, and db.words.db are the same size
it was when I started and I now have these other files with the .work
ext.. How do I combine the new data in the work files with the original
files?

Or...... maybe I'm going at this all wrong. Somebody set me straight
please.

Thanks
Clint Gilders
