Harvest full pdf

Is is possible to harvest full pdf file from arxiv.org (or any other data provider) or can I only get summary of contents in the metadata ?

Hi sarangi,

Harvester supports multiple metadata formats as plugins; if you harvest Arxiv using, for example, Dublin Core, the PDF isn't included, although a URL to the PDF should be. To get Harvester to fetch the PDFs as part of the harvesting process, I'd suggest writing a preprocessor plugin.

HI sarangi,

Depending on your version, there may be several preprocessor plugins included. Check plugins/preprocessors in your installation. The CVS version of Harvester contains several examples, so if you don't find any in your install, check http://pkp.sfu.ca/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/harvester2/plugins/preprocessors.

See also http://pkp.sfu.ca/harvester_documentation, particularly the Technical Reference.
