Thumbs down Indexing MS Word docs under Windows

I've had no success trying to index MS Word (.DOC) documents under Windows. I have:
Code:
define('PHPDIG_INDEX_MSWORD',true);
define('PHPDIG_PARSE_MSWORD','C:\\Program Files\\EasyPHP1-7\\www\\k3\\catdoc');
define('PHPDIG_OPTION_MSWORD','-s 8859-1');
Can anyone comment as to why phpdig makes no attempt to index Word docs?

Any help appreciated

Phil

Hi. Is USE_IS_EXECUTABLE_COMMAND set to true (one) or false (zero) in the config file?

Unhappy

USE_IS_EXECUTABLE_COMMAND is set at the default value of 1. But things have got worse ...
I decided to can 1.6.2 and try 1.6.5, so I removed all code and the DB tables and re-installed 1.6.5 - install seemed to go OK, but now I can't get past here:

Code:
Spidering in progress...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SITE : http://[whatever]
Exclude paths :
- @NONE@

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: is_executable() in 
c:\program files\easyphp1-7\www\k3\phpdig\admin\robot_functions.php on line 633
Any offers/advice gratefully received.

Phil

we-ell, we're improving .... now it spiders OK without giving errors, but it still isn't indexing the contents of the .doc files ... I tried spidering directly to the URL of a .doc file I knew existed:

Code:
Spidering in progress...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SITE : http://[mysite IP]/
Exclude paths :
- @NONE@
1:http://[mysite IP]/k3/CVs/4.doc
(time : 00:00:03)
No link in temporary table

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

links found : 1
http://[mysite IP]/k3/CVs/4.doc
Optimizing tables...
Indexing complete !
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 [Back] to admin interface.
... but there's still no keywords indexed .....

Any more help welcome.

Hi. From the command line what does the following produce?


C:\\Program Files\\EasyPHP1-7\\www\\k3\\catdoc -s 8859-1 change-me-4.doc

OK, sorted out the charset paths, now seems to extract text OK from the command line, but still not via the web interface...

OK, all working; it seems that it didn't like the path name having a space in it at C:\\Program Files\\.......
Once I moved catdoc (and it's config subdirectories) to a path not requiring a space (C:\\ for instance) all was well.
Many thanks for your help, guys. (Though I'm sure I'll be back with more dopy questions
BTW my own requirement is for index searching on just one, local directory full of MS Word files. To facilitate this I have a file index.php which provides a link for the spider to all Word files in the directory:
Code:
<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
<BODY>
<?
// function to return file extension (converts extn to lower case)

function gfext($filename)
{
$pathinfo = pathinfo($filename);
$ext = $pathinfo['extension'];
return strtolower($ext);
}

// read this directory
if ($handle = opendir('.')) {
    while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if (gfext($file) == "doc") {   // we only want the Word files
            echo "<a href=\"".$file."\">".$file."</a><br>";
        }
    }
    closedir($handle);
}
?>
</BODY>
</HTML>
At this page the spider encounters a list of href links, one to each word document. Simple stuff, I know, but may help someone?

All the best

Phil
