Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-868) TXT parser does not honour the specified encoding
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 16:54:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-868?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13433282#comment-13433282

Ken Krugler commented on TIKA-868:

Hi Daniel - using the latest Tika (trunk) I get back UTF-8 as the encoding, if I pass in UTF-8
as the encoding in the content type, via metadata.set(Metadata.CONTENT_TYPE, "text/plain;
charset=UTF-8"); If I don't set the CONTENT_TYPE, I get back ISO-8859-1, which also seems
like the right thing.

> With input text "Indanyl", the encoding is recognized as IBM500, even when "UTF-8" is
specified explicitly.
> I would argue that detection should only be used when the declared information is incorrect
(saving time and avoiding wrong detection), as proposed by Ken Krugler in TIKA-539.
