So for not, I went and used the strings function to handle binary
files. that is, I added this line to my swish.conf:
FileFilter ".xls" strings
Thought I'd still like to know if this is expected behavior.
However, now I have run into a new issue. I have a unicode text file on
my website and when swish-e tried to index that file, it complained:
Warning: Possible embedded null in file
The file is a Unicode format. I think UTF16.
Since I don't have many of these files, I can change the extension but
it would be nice if swish-e understood Unicode. I guess I could find
some Unicode to ascii converter and use that in the FileFilter
I'd be happy to enter a bug report and supply repro (and sample files)
