Again, thank you for the prompt reply. All the indexes I am trying to
merge use the same stop word list.
In the system I am creating, there will be potentially hundreds of
indexes to search if I don't merge them together. I find it hard to
believe that opening and closing this many files would be preferable to
merging them together into a single file.
