Subject Re: Uncompressing nested tar, tar.gz, gz, and zip files
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2017 13:53:12 GMT

I would recommend not repeating chains of those processors but rather just create a loop:

IdentifyMimeType [1] -> RouteOnAttribute -> gzip ? -> CompressContent -> Back
to IdentifyMimeType [1]
                                                                    -> tar or zip ? ->
UnpackContent -> Back to IdentifyMimeType [1]
                                                                    -> other ? --> 
[Continue on through rest of your flow]

Does that make sense?

I may or may not find results from that tar that include additional compressed files or not.
My initial uncompress of the highest level tar may simply return regular files to me.

My goal is to uncompress all so that I have a set of atomic files to work with.
