If you do not specify -i and there are pre-existing databases with the
same names already there, htdig will uses these as a basis for updating
the databases. I say "same names" because if you use -a, then it will look
for pre-existing .work databases to start.

This will go through all the URLs in the database, check to see if they're
modified and index any new or modified documents.

For an example of doing this, see
