I realise that 3rd party tools are required for filters etc.

I meant , is it necessary in order to get a copy of the documentation ?

Is it necessary to install swish-e , and 3rd party tools simply to get a copy of documentation in .pdf ?

why can't it be on the website ?

It seems reasonable to me that someone might want to read documentation before deciding they want to install and use it, or might not have a machine to install it on.

make pdf does nothing for me .... very frustrating
