Looks fine. If you enter junk into oshkosh.config do you get an error?

You can also set IndexDir ./ and IndexFile in your config file
and just type:

  swish-e -c oshkosh.config -S prog

If you want shorter command lines.  

You can also do this to save time while testing:

   ./ > swish.input

Then look at swish.input to see that it makes sense.  Then

  swish-e -S prog -c test.conf -i stdin < swish.input

Or if you like the "useless use of cat" type of thing:

  cat swish.input | swish-e -c test.conf -i stdin

Then use -T indexed_words or other -T options to see what's happening (or
not) while indexing.
