Could you please elaborate on using spider.pl in the default config setup and it
will attempt to use
a Perl module called SWISH::Filter and automatically filter PDF and MS Word
files? Are you talking
about running the initial ./configure script or something else? I'm sorry, but
you have completely
lost me on this.

Yes, or following the instructions I sent on updating Filter.pm.

Swish-e doesn't know how to index PDF files without using a helper
program. There's a few ways to use a helper program:
1) use FileFilter -- swish-e will pass the content through the filter
3) other ways you don't need to worry about right now.
I've explained all of this before. The documentation explains this.
I also pointed you to instructions on how to ask questions that will
help get your problem solved. Please review all of that again.
