Sure. just writes to stdout, so you can run it on a few test
docs and see what it outputs.  Do it on a file that generates a
description and then another that doesn't and compare.

Make sure in the output that the document's header is indeed

$ SPIDER_QUIET=1 /usr/local/lib/swish-e/ default
http://localhost/apache/test.doc  | head
Path-Name: http://localhost/apache/test.doc
Content-Length: 1713
Last-Mtime: 1108148269
Document-Type: TXT*

That's saying the document is TXT*, so you would need to add another
StoreDescription line for TXT*
