I'm using the build in CVS. I can't really do any debugging without a MS
compiler. When I checked with my cygwin compiler it did ok, but that's

That's won't work. The config is:
FileFilter extension program [options]
So swish sees "pdftotext.exe %p" as one parameter, so if you are indexing
file 'test.pdf' swish will call pdftotext like
pdftotext.exe %p test.pdf test.pdf
which is not what you want. If you want %p substituted by swish then it
must be an option.
FileFilter .pdf pdftotext.exe "%p -"
Then swish will call it like
pdftotext.exe test.pdf -
You can see this below. We also call popen in "r" mode, which is probably
not a problem since line endings are not important.
/* if no filter cmd param given, use default */
opt_mask = (fi->options) ? fi->options : "'%p' '%P'";
cmd_opts = filterCallCmdOptStr (opt_mask, fprop);
len = strlen (fi->prog) + strlen (cmd_opts);
filtercmd=emalloc(len + 2);
sprintf(filtercmd, "%s %s", fi->prog, cmd_opts);
fp = popen (filtercmd,"r"); /* Open stream */
