check the usage for swish-filter-test. What you asked it to do was filter 2
documents: foo.pdf and foo.txt. I think you were expecting it to write the
contents of an input (foo.pdf) to an output (foo.txt) but that's not what
see perldoc swish-filter-test
You might have meant:
$ swish-filter-test -content foo.pdf > foo.txt
which would print the content of the converted/filtered foo.pdf to stdout.
> On another note, is there anything that needs to be included in the spider config to get the SWISH::Filter working for pdf documents? Or is it automatic?
I believe it is automatic, as long as swish-filter-test works (which in your
case it appears to). But be sure to read
to be sure...
