Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1080) Arabic characters under windows
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 13:09:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1080?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13573461#comment-13573461

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-1080:
----------------------------------

Windows is bad for this. I strongly suspect you either have your terminal configured with
a different encoding to the default one given to Java (you'll almost certainly want to be
using UTF-8 for both), or you have your terminal configured with a font that can't render
arabic characters.

I've just tried with your file on Linux, where the terminal encoding and JVM encoding are
both set to UTF-8, and it renders just fine for me with --text

> If tika is executed under windows the text mode (--text) is failing to extract arabic
chars and outputs only question marks. The same behaviour occurs if tika is executed as a
server. The issue is not present in the GUI, only commandline. The issue is not present if
the output is html.
