Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-86) Support magic(5) files
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2012 14:26:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-86?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13186938#comment-13186938

Andrew Jackson commented on TIKA-86:
------------------------------------

The file command comes with signatures for a lot more formats, see https://github.com/glensc/file/tree/master/magic/Magdir.
I think having signatures that could be shared between file and Tika would be great, but perhaps
converting them to Tika's XML format would make more sense?

> Tika should have a parser for the magic(5) file format used by the file(1) command. Then
we could use existing magic rules from places like http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/docs/conf/magic.
