Long story short I am going to have to index and search uploaded files.
They will be in Word document, Excel, pdf, and text format. So what is
best way to extract information in RoR so that I can place the needed
into the database? There are command line utilities that will convert
to txt but I would prefer an in code solution if possible. Any
on excel? The only thing I could find was a perl module.
I’ve decided to use acts_as_ferret as my indexing agent. Does anyone
any tips on using it other then
