NAME - create Cache Digests from lists of URLs


  echo | -duv saved-digest saved-digest < old-access-log
  zcat old-access-log.gz | -v saved-digest


This program lets you create a Cache Digest from a list of URLs supplied via STDIN. This will then be saved to disk. The list of URLs can be in Squid log file format (the default), or simply a list of URLs (when the -u argument is supplied).



Debug mode - causes helpful debugging messages to be printed


Input is a list of URLs rather than Squid log file format.


Verbose mode - causes each URL being added to the Digest to be printed to STDOUT.
