Text Filters:


Check necessary filter to activate it.


Text filters convert file from some format to the text. It allows _program_name_ to "see" that document as user see it when viewing it. 

For example .htm filter will convert htm document (with all it's tags) to text document, which will contain only information, necessary for analysis of document. _program_name_ will convert .htm to text, which will contain document content, title, information from meta-tags - keywords and description.


Quoting options:

Please note: for plain text files you can specify only number of characters to display before and after found keyword. For .pdf, .doc, .htm, .xls and for other files that _program_name_ convert before displaying, you can specify the number of lines to display.
