Re: How to Index PDF and Doc files in WinNT Enviro

Its quite easy to do that,

First go to

and grab the binaries. The first program is for converting DOC files into 
TXT files, the second one is for converting PDF files into TXT files.

The next step its to add this lines to your config file:
- IndexContents TXT2 .pdf .txt .doc
- FileFilter .pdf C:/Projects/Xpdf/pdftotext.exe "%p -"
- FileFilter .doc C:/Projects/CatDoc/catdoc.exe '-s8859-1 -d8859-1 "%p"'

With the first line you tell Swish-e to use the TXT parser for DOC and PDF 
files, the second and third line uses those programs to make the conversion 
and get a plain TXT file.

Im currently using Windows 2000 with SWISH-E ver 2.2.1 and I havent had any 
problem, I hope this can help you out.
