htdig 3.1.5 doesn't handle file:/ URLs, only http://... URLs. You can
make local_urls work with this style of URL, if the documents are on the
same system as the one on which you run htdig, using a syntax similar to
this example from my system:
where /home/httpd/html corresponds to my Apache DocumentRoot setting.
Note that local_urls only indexes a certain limited set of file types,
determined by file extension. For any other file type, or for directory
URLs where there's no index.html, it falls back to the HTTP server.
