I've put David's new external converter on the web site, at

I've just uploaded a new external converter script, doc2html.pl,
onto the htdig ftp server.

It's heavily based on your own conv_doc.pl, but completely re-written.
I claim the following improvements:

        Easier to add new converters
        Uses HTML converters when available
        Includes conversion for WordPerfect
        Includes conversion for RTF documents
        Will read plain text files
        No Perl errors ("break" is C not Perl !)

The rest is up to you. I hope you can find the time to take
a look at it.
