Hi Andrew

I've just downloaded htdig-3.08b1 and just had our local people ask if
htdig could search through the likes of PDF and Word files as well as
HTML. I've got tools that can make at least a pass at this task, but I
thought htdig couldn't be convinced to call an external program. Then I
saw external_parser...

However, it isn't documented anywhere - could you tell me how it's used?
Can I say that ".doc" files should be piped through word2txt and ".ps"
through gs2txt?
