Re: NoContents of files with no extension

I dont know what the directive might look at all.

I should say that (somehwat perversely??) i am combining 
SWISH++ which seems to extract word docs excel and ppt fine 
but not index filenames, with swish-e which does the latter but not 
the former. I am happy to be corrected on all points here.

I run an NT4 platform

(I have tried a setup with catdoc but i've not got it to work)

So as my users( apologies for the possessiveness) will search for 
file names as well as for content of files, the front end will offer 
them this choice.

Thanks for the tip about i'll take a look and see what it 
can do.
