(I tend to just use a full path in the FileFilter and not use FilterDir.)
So, can you use !# in Win32? Or do you have to say:
FilterDir .pdf "perl pdftotext.pl %p"

Don't need to do that now. For debugging I'd do:
print STDERR "Input file:'$Input'\n";

OH, so all your perl program is doing is calling pdftotext? I hope the
documentation is somewhat clear that calling a perl program just to run a
program will really slow down indexing. Just call the program.
That looks like the right command, but maybe pdftotext isn't in your path?

You need to upgrade swish, as my version doesn't say that.
This is on linux:

FileFilter .pdf pdftotext "%p -"
