I wish to use the xpdf to index pdf files with Swish-e.  (v. 1.3.2, running on FreeBSD)

1.  Swish-e runs okay on HTML (filesystem)
2.  pdftotext runs from the command line.

Swish CONF file

IndexDir /usr/home/
IndexOnly Nursing.pdf
FileFilter  .pdf
IgnoreWords SwishDefault
IndexFile /usr/home/
IndexName "Mohave Community College PDF Index"
IndexReport 3

Filter Sript:  (
# Adobe PDF filter
# see:
/usr/local/bin/pdftotext "$1" - 2>/dev/null

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Bad directive on line #3: FileFilter  .pdf
