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

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/
