Subject RE: How do I enable PDF/Word etc. parsing in nutch?

Hi Jason,

 Step 1: edit <nutch_home>/nutch-default.xml and edit the following lines:


<!-- enable your plugins here -->
  <description>Regular expression naming plugin directory names to
  include.  Any plugin not matching this expression is excluded.  By
  default Nutch includes crawling just HTML and plain text via HTTP,
  and basic indexing and search plugins.

 Step 2: make sure that the plugin is built:

  From the <nutch_home> directory, perform the following:
  # ensure that the core classes are built
  % ant compile-core

  # ensure that the plugins are built
  % ant compile-plugins

Note, that the compile-plugins task assumes that your plugin build info is
in <nutch_home>/src/plugin/build.xml, so if you're building a new plugin,
you'll have to add the ant compile info there, just follow the examples of
the other plugins.

 Step 3: you're done.

Good luck.
