That is the issue. I installed it to a different directory. I installed it
to $HOME/htdig/contrib so the charsets are in the
$HOME/htdig/contrib/lib/catdoc directory. So what do I have to modify to
tell catdoc where the charset directory is?
... and in a later message (also off-list)...
That is great info and you were correct that the catdoc files were the
problem, only when I did the config - make - make install for catdoc, I
pointed it to another directory and the lib/catdoc directory is there with
all the correct files, so why is catdoc failing to find those files?
Well, I'm assuming that when you ran ./configure, you gave it the argument
--prefix=$HOME/htdig/contrib, or did you point it to this directory by some
other means? Is it possible that your home directory, i.e. the value of
$HOME, has changed between when you compiled catdoc and now? If you gave
the --prefix option above to ./configure, it would have expanded $HOME to
wherever your home directory was at the time, so when catdoc was compiled,
it would have had a compile time option of
given to it by src/Makefile, where /path/to/home/yourname would actually
have been the true location of your home directory at the time. If that
location has changed since, catdoc would still have the old location
compiled in. You could probably find out what that location was by
using the command:
strings $HOME/htdig/contrib/bin/catdoc | grep lib/catdoc
and seeing if that's different than what "echo $HOME" reports. If it's
different, you'll need to reconfigure, recompile and reinstall catdoc.
