Re: Storing Descriptions for PDF Files

We have lots of PDF files and some of them are very big.  None have a
metadata description set (the people
who created them are lazy).

Will any of the filters parse the document and take the first n characters,
like what StoreDescription does?

There's a few ways to do it -- each has its good and bad points.
Regardless, you will need to install the xpdf package.

If you only have a few files then FileFilter is probably the easy method.
If you can get the SWISH::Filter setup working then it's kind of cool as
you can add in more filters as you need them without changing much else.
