Sure a lot of Windows questions lately!
The FileFilter directive takes a file extention.
If you are indexing a lot of pdf files you might find running a batch
script for each file takes a bit of time compared to just running the
pdftotext program directly from the FileFilter directive. I'd really be
interested to see the difference on Windows between using a .bat script as
the filter vs. running the program directly.
