Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 07:57:44 GMT
Better detection of plain text versus binary formats with a text header
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-154
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-154
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: mime
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
            Priority: Minor


Antoni Mylka noted on the mailing list:

    Many binary formats begin with magic byte sequences composed of ASCII characters, e.g.
    zipfiles begin with PK
    pdfs begin with %PDF-
    chms help files begin with ITSF
    etc.

Tika should do a better job of detecting such cases.
