RE: SWISH-E - indexing for non-HTML files?

I've enhanced swish-e by a simple filtering feature.
So you can install filters for e.g. PDF or other
document types (like Winword, Postscript,...).

This means: the filter has the task to convert the
content of a file into ascii (or ISO)-text on the
fly during the index process. The filter output will
be piped to swish-e.

More (rough and brief) information can be found on

E.g. we are indexing @1.2GB PDF a day on our intranet
using swish-e.

hope it helps - Rainer

I was wondering:can SWISH-E be used to index such things as
WORD documents?
