Hi all,

I wrote a couple of Spotlight importers that people may find useful.   
BibImporter (for BibTeX files), and DVIImporter (reads text of DVI  
files).  In my testing, they work fine, but let me know of any  
problems (crashes or memory leaks).  Source is available on request;  
DVIImporter has dvi2tty from gwTeX bundled with it.

The importers are available at <http://homepage.mac.com/amaxwell/>,  
and can be installed in ~/Library/Spotlight or /Library/Spotlight.   
You can force Spotlight to index your teTeX tree with `mdimport -f / 
usr/local/teTeX` in Terminal, and the DVI importer should give you  
access to the contents of the DVI documentation files from Spotlight,  
while Apple's importers will index the others.

If you read the bibdesk-users list and installed a previous version  
of my BibImporter plugin, please reinstall from the above URL.
