[EP-tech] Re: Indexing files inside a compressed (zip, rar) document

Hi Andras,

If you're on 3.3, have a look inside lib/cfg.d/search_xapian.pl and look where it does the full text indexing (look for "Convert"). It might just be easier to write a zip/tar to "text/plain" Convert plug-in.

Note that at the moment there are no consideration on the "security" settings of the documents. It might something you need to address when you're indexing research data.

If you come up with something, feel free to share your work on e.g. GitHub (github.com/eprints/eprints), thanks!

zip/rar/etc archives? Is there any ready solution for this, or do I have to 
write an indexer plugin? The rationale behind: the large number of files 
contain research data, so they are easiest handled as a zip, but still would 
be nice to search inside...
