    First decide which TYPE your documents should have: 

        1) If you want your WAIS server to deliver documents, TYPE
           should be HTML.

        
           Your command line should *start*:

                waisindex -T HTML ...

           Then go along as with other databases. You can use type
           field (-t field) in addition to the -T flags.

        2) If you want an http server to deliver documents, TYPE should
           be URL. You must tell waisindex, how the URL of the files
           should be composed. This is done by specifying the prefix
           to be removed from the file path and a prefix to add:

           Your command line should *start*:

                waisindex -t URL what-to-trim what-to-add ...


    Note: If you have compiled with the modified URL handling 
    (Questioned during configure) you can customize the headline also 
    with document type URL. But currently only SFgate can handle such 
    databases. The default handling is to put the URL in the headline.
