DESCRIPTION

       GNU  libextractor  is  a  simple  library  for  keyword extraction.  libextractor does not
       support all formats but supports a simple plugging mechanism such that you can quickly add
       extractors  for  additional  formats, even without recompiling libextractor.  libextractor
       typically ships with dozens of plugins that can be used to obtain meta  data  from  common
       file-types.  If you want to write your own plugin for some filetype, all you need to do is
       write a little library that implements a single method with this signature:

        void EXTRACTOR_XXX_extract_method (struct EXTRACTOR_ExtractContext *ec);

       ec contains function pointers for reading, seeking, getting  the  overall  file  size  and
       returning meta data.  There is also a field with options for the plugin.  New plugins will
       be automatically located and used once they are  installed  in  the  respective  directory
       (typically something like /usr/lib/libextractor/).

       The application extract gives an example how to use libextractor.

       The   basic   use   of   libextractor   is   to   load   the  plugins  (for  example  with
       EXTRACTOR_plugin_add_defaults), then to extract the keyword list using  EXTRACTOR_extract,
       and finally unloading the plugins (with EXTRACTOR_plugin_remove_all).

       Textual  meta  data obtained from libextractor is supposed to be UTF-8 encoded if the text
       encoding is known.  Plugins are supposed to  convert  meta-data  to  UTF-8  if  necessary.
       The  EXTRACTOR_meta_data_print  function  converts the UTF-8 keywords to the character set
       from the current locale before printing them.
