Its quite easy to do that,

First go to



and grab the binaries. The first program is for converting DOC files =

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 =

files, the second and third line uses those programs to make the =

and get a plain TXT file.

Im currently using Windows 2000 with SWISH-E ver 2.2.1 and I havent had =

problem, I hope this can help you out.
