Before you can read a document (HTML/text file) it has to be converted to a Plucker format. For this we need some converters. The provided parser tool is the most essential, but to get support for images as well you might want to read on as we need some 3rd party applications for that as well. That is, if you lack images in your gathered web pages most likely you are missing some of the necessary tools.
The provided parser tool currently runs on Linux, OS/2, Windows,
Solaris, AIX and FreeBSD. It should be possible to get it running on
any platform with Python support.
NOTE: On OS/2 you must install Plucker on a HPFS-partition. Plucker
will not run on OS/2 if you are using the FAT file system as Plucker
requires long filenames and OS/2 implements the traditional way of FAT
without the extensions known from Windows.
If you know of other platforms where Plucker can be used successfully we would appreciate if you send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org informing us about it and if possible also include information about additional requirements to get it running.
