Each of your commands create a built collection directory, and each time =

It is not possible to create a built collection directory by running =

buildcol.pl multiple times on different archives directories. It is =

however possible to run buildcol.pl multiple times to build different =

stages of the collection. i.e. different indexes or the gdbm database. =

It is also possible to run import.pl multiple times on different import =

directories to add content in stages to the archives directory. However =

this is not the case with buildcol.pl.

To build your collection you need

perl -S buildcol.pl cases

to build it on the entirety of the archives directory.

If this is not practical, due to the size of your collection, you might =

consider using cross collection searching. This works for searching but =

not browsing. This is possible if you build multiple smaller collections =

with the same structure. See the Developer's Guide for more information, =

available from www.greenstone.org


Hope this helps,


Richard.
