Filtering MS Word Documents

Hello All,

 I have been using swish-e for a while and it works beautifully while 
indexing PDF and XL files. I was trying to index MS word files and only 
the filenames were being indexed. So I tried a simple swish-filter-test 
and found this....

[root@tnt filters]# catdoc -V
Catdoc Version 0.93.3
[root@tnt filters]# swish-e -V
SWISH-E 2.4.2
[root@tnt filters]# swish-filter-test test.doc

Document test.doc was not filtered.
   Document:     test.doc  (test.doc)
   Content-Type: application/x-msword
   Parser type:

** /usr/local/bin/swish-filter-test:
  Skipping binary [test.doc]

Catdoc by itself works fine and is in the right path. Any pointers or 
suggestions would be helpful.
