htfuzzy - fuzzy command-line search utility for the ht://Dig search engine


htfuzzy [-c configfile] [-v] algorithm [options]


Description to follow here


-c configfile
Use the specified configfile instead of the default.

-v Verbose mode Use this to get more verbose output while running htfuzzy. More than
one v can be specified (ie. -vv , -vvv
etc ). Specifying more than two v's is probably only useful for debugging

Supported Algorithms

Different algorithms are supported for searching:
soundex Creates a slightly modified soundex key database. Differences with the
standard soundex algorithm are: Keys are 6 digits and the first letter is also
encoded. metaphone Creates a metaphone key database. This algorithm is more
specific to English, but will get fewer "weird" matches than the soundex

accents (No description of the algorithm at the moment)

endings Creates two databases which can be used to match common word
endings. The creation of these databases requires a list of affix rules and a
dictionary which uses those affix rules. The format of the affix rules and
dictionary files are the ones used by the ispell program. Included with the
distribution are the affix rules for English and a fairly small English dictionary.
Other languages can be supported by getting the appropriate affix rules and
dictionaries. These are available for many languages; check the ispell distribution
for more details.

synonyms Creates a database of synonyms for words. It reads a text database of
synonyms and creates a database that htsearch can then use. Each line of the
text database consists of words where the first word will have the other words on
that line as synonyms.

Notes on searching

Please consult specialised literature to find out how the different algorithms work or
simply try another
search strategy you do not get the intended search results.
