Not directly, but like anything in swish, there's a way:
There's a few options:
When using HTML2 it can use either robots.txt or the robots <meta> tag
exclusion. Or, swish can skip html documents that match a given title.
If you want to ignore files based on some text you could write a very
simple filter that uses grep and cat. Grep for the text, and if not found,
cat the file back to swish. Otherwise, return a title that tells swish to
skip the text.
In the config do something like
FileFilterMatch .\f.sh %p /./
FileRules title is skip
Then use something like:
> cat f.sh
if grep foo "$1" >/dev/null
Myself, I would use -S prog, read in the file, look for the text, and then
only pass the files I want indexed on to swish because that avoids forking
swish and running a shell script for every document, but that's more work.
Does that help?
