I'm wanting to use ht://Dig to index a local file system, using the
file: URL type. Unfortunately, many of the file names in the system
contain spaces and the version of ht://Dig I'm using (snapshot of the
3.2.0 beta from May as compiled by RedHat for 8.0) removes the spaces so
that ht://Dig can't find the files.
It seems like there's a patch against URL.cc in version 3.1.6 that
allows one to specify a variable allow_space_in_url to get round this
I've tried version 3.1.6, but it doesn't appear to understand the file:
type of URL.
I've tried compiling the latest snapshot, to see whether it now dealt
with spaces in file names, but I can't get past the configure stage due
to gcc-3.2's error messages and the configure script. (It fails at zlib
in the db directory).
So, my question is, is the fileSpace patch (or something like it that I
couldn't find using grep) incorporated in the latest snapshot? If not,
are there plans to include it? If there are plans to include it, how do
I go about compiling ht://Dig under Redhat 8.0?
