Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1080) Arabic characters under windows
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2013 14:03:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1080?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13573496#comment-13573496

Jukka Zitting commented on TIKA-1080:

If you don't provide an option like --encoding=UTF-8 on the tika-app command line, the text
mode will assume that you'll be using the default encoding of the system (as reported by the
Java runtime). Any characters not supported by that encoding will end up as question marks.
The simple fix here is to explicitly provide the desired encoding with such a command line

In contrast HTML output defaults to UTF-8 (though you can override it with the --encoding
option), since unlike with plain text, HTML clients can automatically extract the encoding
information from the head of the document and thus display the content correctly.

> 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.
