Hi I've written ferret_helper.rb (FerretHelper module) containing wrapper methods for converting PDF, HTML, Open Document and Microsoft Word files to plain text for the Ferret index analysers. To help test it I wrote a simple ff.rb (Ferret Finder) command-line utility to index and search document files. You can download the code at http://www.methods.co.nz/ff/ Cheers, Stuart -- Stuart R.

Wow, great step for making something like desktop and email search available with ruby and ferret. I'll definitly try this out. Thank you so much! Just as a pointer for something I've used for email searching before I've converted to gmail: http://zoe.nu/ Regards Jan P.
