Use either the -S prog and method of spidering or use the
SWISH::Filter module with -S http.  Just to confuse things more, with -S
prog and you can either use SWISH::Filter or the pdf2html module
to convert the pdf files.  Both are given as examples in the
prog-bin/ file.

FileFilter should work with -S http.  I'll see if I can't get a patch.
