Here's another one, based on something I got of the archives

IndexDir c:/xfer/swish
FileFilter .pdf ./lib/swish-e/ '"%p" "%P"'
and this outputs, running as 'swish-e -c swish.cfg', from the directory
where I installed SWISH-E

Indexing done!

However, the only PDF file in the directory being indexed contains 4
words, each on its own line - abercrombie, fitch, sears, roebuck.

I must be doing something wrong.

I can certainly index html files with no problem whatsoever, so I know
the basic program functionality is there.
