I'm not sure if it's totally aborting or what.  The way out.txt looks,
it seems like it's finishing what it's supposed to do AND raising an
error in the app log.  I'll look into it more and get back to you.

I will try to do so.  I suspect it's the Word 6.0 files, because here's
another thing: when I send out.txt into swish-e for indexing, it quits
when it gets to a word doc that is still compressed.  I located the word
doc and found that it was in word 6.0 format.  I'm working on plugging
in wvware right now.

The hell you say?

That would be cool.  After I get this working, I'm going ot have to
chill out on it for awhile and just enjoy it working, but I will be
willing to spend some time on weekends trying to learn enough perl to be
able to code this.
