Manual for using the Husserl-Database

There are several ways to access the Husserl-Database. We offer three methods as follows:
  1. With a WWW-browser
  2. With a progressive ftp-programm
  3. With a basic ftp-programm of DOS-computer

(1) With a WWW-browser (at present the newest and the most comfortable way)
Please open the Husserl-Database Home Page( with WWW(World Wide Web)-browser (e.g. Mosaic, McWeb, Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.)and enter the Husserl-Database by following links.

(2) With a progressive ftp-programm
In the case you use a progressive ftp-programm (e.g. a ftp-programm of Chameleon, which is a set of TCP/IP applications for Windows 3.1., or Fetch, which is a ftp-programm for Mac), please type in each column as follows, and you will enter the HUA directory.
    User ID: anonymous
    Password: *************************(your e-mail addresss)
    Directory: /HUA
By using the above-mentioned WWW-browser, if you click the place "Anonymous-FTP server" of the Home Page of Shizuoka University (, then you will find the "HUA" directory among other directories. You can archieve the same result by typing "" in "Open Location" of the WWW-browser.
(3) With a basic ftp-programm of DOS-computer
  1. Prepare the file transfer protocol "ftp" (a PC/TCP program for LAN connection).

  2. Load the software, then type:
      A:\>ftp [return]
    Next, you will be asked for your user code:
        Userid for logging in on
        ftp [return]
    Then you will be asked for your password:
        Password for logging in as ftp on
    Please type here your e-mil address :
       ************************** [return]
    (this will not appear on the screen) Then the following prompt will appear:
    And you have entered the directory "anonymous ftp."

  3. If you type here:
    all the registered directory names in anonymous ftp will appear. Among them will be found the directory "HUA," under which the Husserl-Database is registered. By typing:
        ftp>cd HUA
    you can enter the directory of the Husserl-Database.

  4. When you type:
    and get contents of the directory, you will find two sub-directories: "doc" (explanations, etc.) and "dat" (search results). Before going on to access the data in "dat," you should read the "readme.doc" (about the Husserl-Database) and the "rules.doc" (rules for using the Husserl-Database) in "doc." In order to access these files, please type:
          ftp>cd doc [return]
    and you will find yourself with a list of document files with ".doc" at the end. If, for example, you type:
         ftp>get readme.doc [return]
    Your computer will read this file.

  5. Then, to leave "ftp" temporarily, you should type:
         ftp>quit [return]
    and read this file with an editor-application. In addition to "readme.doc" and "rules.doc," "manual.doc," "texas.doc," "register.doc," etc. are also included in the "doc" sub-directory, as is mentioned in "readme.doc." These can be accessed in the same way.

  6. On the other hand, if you wish to directly access search data, instead of "ftp>cd doc [return],"you should type:
        ftp>cd dat [return]
    and you will enter the sub-directory "dat." (Or, by typing "ftp>cd .." from the sub-directory "doc," you can turn back to the upper directory, or, by typing "ftp>cd /" from a lower directory, you can turn back to the root directory "HUA.") When you type:
          ftp>dir [return]
    you will find sub-directories for each volume with the names "hua_11", "hua_13," "hua_14," "hua_15," "hua_16." Then, if you will look into for exemple the volume 11, type:
         ftp>dir cd hua_11[return]
    you can enter into the sub-directory of the voluem 11.

  7. If you type furthermore:
         ftp>dir [return]
    you will find files with the names "inhalt.dat", "list-t.dat", "list-a.dat", "list-e.dat","a.dat" ... "z.dat", "minder.dat", "anmerk.dat", "einleit.dat".

  8. Choose the file you need. For example, if you want to retrieve information concerning a word beginning with 'a,' type:
       ftp>get a.dat [return]
    and the file will be read into your computer.

  9. To leave the program, type:
        ftp>quit [return]
