Subject [greenstone-devel] Adding arbitrary binary images
Hi all,

I'd like to add some arbitrary binary images to a collection, but am
having some troubles doing so. In this case, I'd like to add a TrueType
font to a collection. I would like to treat this (and other such files)
just as an image, which would need no translating. In the collection,
I would just like some generic looking icon next to a description of
the file.

Based on the directions in the UnknownPlug.pm file, I've tried using
it with this line in the collect.cfg:

plugin UnknownPlug -process_exp "*.ttf" -assoc_field "TTF"

The fail.log is empty, which I *assume* means it processed it, but
I can't find it anywhere in the collection.

Has anyone else done this? Any ideas?
