My perl version is 5.00503-10. Right now I am using bash. I also failed to
mention that I am using RH 6.2.

This is one message that I get: htmerge: Discarding 98008fpdf in doc #795

This is another:
Deleted, no excerpt: 37/http://labweb1/pdf/2000001.pdf

(I get around 400 of these messages with only the number prior to /http:...
changing. I didn't include it all because it is very long. I have text
files of the entire rundig -vvv run and my htdig.conf if it would help.
Thanks again for your help.
