Which snapshot did you use? 3.2.0b3 is still a work in progress, and is
slowly but surely getting closer to be ready for beta release. The
121700 snapshot is the most stable one so far.

I think most Red Hat Linux users would suggest gdb, or perhaps xxgdb.
If the C++ program you're debugging is htdig, I'd also suggest using
the debugging output already programmed into it, and activated with
multiple -v options, as you get a lot of feedback that way. (I'm a
big believer in debugging trace prints in general, and do most of my
C/C++ debugging that way.)

You should run htsearch from the command line either with no arguments
at all, and let it prompt you for the search words, or you should give
it a full CGI-style query string as an argument, e.g.:

   /opt/www/cgi-bin/htsearch 'words=butterfly+valve&method=and'

Be sure to quote the query string if it contains any shell meta characters
such as "&", ";", "*", etc.
