That has helped some, though I still feel like I'm swimming through a fog.
Probably something to do with it being nearly 4:15am here. Mmm. Must be
crazy or something.
Obviously I haven't got it right yet . . . I'm getting an error message "-f
requires list of index files". Would you mind pointing me to an example of
how one should pass an array to a sub program such as makewordlist ?
I think I understand that when you refer to carefully validating the indexes,
you're referring to the line you previously provided:
my @valid_indexes =qw/ index1 index2 index3 index4 /;
so that only those indexes called from the web page which are also listed in
that line, are able to be used. A good idea. A question on the format of
listing the indexes in that line though. . . . should the indexes be listed
as the actual 'indexfile (ie. index.swish anotherindex.swish) or as the
indexname (ie. such as MyIndex HisIndex) ? I would assume the former.
With regards to some of those other bits and pieces you mentioned, I'm not
sure what they're about either; I'm not the author and haven't got to the
point of fully understanding that script.
Anyway, off to bed.
