Thanks for such a detailed answer. It makes sense now to me.

I was trying to natively build swish-e under windows with some modifications
since we wanted to deploy swish-e on desktops throughout the organization where
we have a mixture of windows and linux clients and needed a minimal system
which would work similarily in both cases. I cannot ask all users to have perl
on their systems as well.
What are the chances of adding in a native parser for all document formats
onto swish-e itself? I would love to contribute if this is possible and feasible.
