I figured out how to index the file with your command

the output is as follows using the command " swish-e -i 
/usr/local/arkiv/pil.doc -c swish.conf -T indexed_words"

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Indexing "/usr/local/arkiv/pil.doc"
     Adding:[1:swishdocpath(11)]   'pil'   Pos:1  Stuct:0x1 ( FILE )
     Adding:[1:swishdocpath(11)]   'doc'   Pos:2  Stuct:0x1 ( FILE )
