Subject [jira] Resolved: (TIKA-154) Better detection of plain text versus binary formats with a text header
Date Sat, 17 Jan 2009 01:17:59 GMT

Jukka Zitting resolved TIKA-154.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 0.3
         Assignee: Jukka Zitting

In revision 735193 I implemented the plain text detection mechanism described in section 4
of the content type sniffing draft [1] I mentioned earlier on the mailing list.

This seems to work pretty fine, and finally allows us to detect plain text documents with
no file name or type hints. :-)

Resolving as Fixed.

> Antoni Mylka noted on the mailing list:
>     Many binary formats begin with magic byte sequences composed of ASCII characters,
>     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.
