 * Represents content from a specified source, such as TREC, Reuters etc. A
 * {@link ContentSource} is responsible for creating {@link DocData} objects for
 * its documents to be consumed by {@link DocMaker}. It also keeps track
 * of various statistics, such as how many documents were generated, size in
 * bytes etc.
 * <p>
 * Supports the following configuration parameters:
 * <ul>
 * <li>content.source.forever - specifies whether to generate documents
 * forever (<b>default=true).
 * <li>content.source.verbose - specifies whether messages should be
 * output by the content source (<b>default=false).
 * <li>content.source.encoding - specifies which encoding to use when
 * reading the files of that content source. Certain implementations may define
 * a default value if this parameter is not specified. (<b>default=null).
 * <li>content.source.log.step - specifies for how many documents a
 * message should be logged. If set to 0 it means no logging should occur.
 * <b>NOTE: if verbose is set to false, logging should not occur even if
 * logStep is not 0 (<b>default=0).
 * </ul>
