hi
 
I was trying to figure out how to make use of the pdftotext.exe tool to index PDFs on a windows platform.
>From reading the doc I see the unix method of redirecting all out put to the null dev using the pdftotext.sh
so I did somethinng like:
ctty nul:
 pdftotext.exe  %1% >con:
ctty con:
 
so hopefully that is equivelant script wise now my question is how do I apply this to only *.pdfs 
is the a place in the config file where I can enter to use this script/filter on pdfs when it fs spiders across them???
