Ok, I understand that I need to include a filter file in order to index the
contents of MS Word documents stored on a Unix system... (As I understand
it, this was NOT necessary under SWISH 1.3...)
I've downloaded and compiled "catdoc"... Catdoc is even referenced in one of
the filter files under SWISH-E 2.1...
I've installed it in it's default location, and made sure that the filter
file is pointing to the correct directory structure...
But which configuration file should I modify to make SWISH-E sees this MS
Word filter file?
Thanks in advance,

Well, without seeing your config, I don't know. To index Word documents you
need to use a filter (or add filtering to your program if indexing with -S
Don't use a shell or perl script to call catdoc -- rather call catdoc
directly as shown in the example. The scripts will kill your indexing
