TextSearch (Content plugin for fulltext search in DOC)

Post by *Alextp »

This Content plugin allows to perform full-text search in any documents, which have command line converters to the plain-text form.

Currently included converters are:

- MS RTF: Rtf2Txt converter (built-in)
- OpenOffice.org: OdfToTxt converter
- Adobe PDF: Xpdf converter

Other useful converters not included into distribution are (links in Readme):
HTM HTML RTF PDF WPD HLP DOC XLS PPT XML
CS CPP H TXT HTM HTML etc

Good idea. Several months ago I've been looking for such converter and the only freeware thing I found was a php script. I can send it to you, maybe you'll understand russian comments ;)
The whole thing is 11.1 KB of code.

Of course. But if you won't find such thing, this is so small that you could rewrite it to whatever you want. Even if you don't know php it shouldn't take more than 1 day ;)

Received. OK, it is a 8 KB php script which is hard to trsanslate to Delphi/C. It's a separate job (not for a day for me). There is a lot of code there...

Other variants?

Hmm, does it depend on OLE and Word application?
It seems it does, so I will not use it.

I already have Delphi source with OLE usage which can convert doc to txt.

Yep, 15 Mb is too large.
In zipped form it's 5 Mb but too large for plugin.

I cannot run AntiWord from non-default directory. So cannot be used in plugin folder. I'll put link to AntiWord in my Readme though.
