Subject [greenstone-users] Re Greenstone, prefered file types
For several years I have been building a personal collection of historic
science books and articles in digital format and stored on CD Rs. I have
used various versions of Scansoft Paperport Deluxe to handle and sort the
collection and, most recently, Paperport and Abbyy Fine reader for OCR. At
present the files are "max" format, or in PDF (image with text under) .
A few are in my preferred format;"DjVu".

A major issue is the ability to search content on individual CDR disks.
Greenstone now seems by far the best option and I intend to try it on my
collection. Before starting though I would like to be better informed on
file types:

Can Greenstone be persuaded to "see" *.max files: Image of text with OCR
text included?.

Which flavour of PDF is prefered?.

Can Greenstone access DjVu files.

Thank You, Eric
