p. Over at “kapustabrothers.com”:http://www.kapustabrothers.com, Shaun Farrell has started an article series on “Indexing PDF Documents with Zend_Search_Lucene”:http://www.kapustabrothers.com/2008/01/20/indexing-pdf-documents-with-zend_search_lucene/.
bq. I along with many others have been trying and asking how to index and search PDF files. Once Zend released its Framework, which has a port of Java Lucene to PHP, I decided to jump on board and find a way to index and search PDF files.
p. The article is short on the why but heavy on the how. This means of course that there’s lots of source code goodness for you to play with.
p. If you are working with Zend Framework, this is an interesting idea that will give you something to play with while it’s cold outside at night.
