Imgindex v3.2

Imgindex will generate html index pages for your collection of images. It will scan the current directory and all it’s subdirectories for images, and generate “ImgIndex.html” files. The index will be sorted by image size, and can use my imginfo program to get more information about an image. This program has been tested on several Unix flavors, and on Windows 95/NT. It will recognise GIF and JPG images.

 

Usage

Start the program in the directory where the images are. The quickest way is to start the program without any parameters. It will then create “ImgIndex.html” files in the current directory and all the subdirectories.

imgindex [-h] [-o outfile] [-i url] [-u url]
-h Show this help.
-o outfile Write to this filename instead of the default ‘ImgIndex.html’.
-i url Use this URL for the imginfo program (optional).
-u url Prepend this url to all images. This parameter is only needed is the ‘imginfo’ program is used.

 

For example: if images live in web-directory “/images/”, and the imginfo program is accessible with url “/cgi-bin/imginfo.exe”, then you could start the imgindex program with this commandline: imgindex -i /cgi-bin/imginfo.exe -u /images/

 

Installation

Copy the imgindex.exe file to a directory in your path. Unix users will first have to copy Makefile.unx to Makefile, and run make. 

Warning

The program will overwrite all ImgIndex.html files in the current directory and all it’s subdirectories, without asking anything.
