Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-245) Support of CHM Format
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 23:10:15 GMT

Tejas Patil commented on TIKA-245:
----------------------------------

I am working on NUTCH-1454 and I am observing that tika is not able to extract contents from
chm documents. (i tried with several chm files but it worked for none). Chm viewer however
could show entire contents of the file. I am not the only guy who is facing this issue (see
[here|http://lucene.472066.n3.nabble.com/CHM-Files-and-Tika-tp3999735p4001245.html])

> It might be a good idea to support the CHM File format of Windows. Some information about
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Compiled_HTML_Help#Extracting_to_HTML. The CHM format
contains HTML files which can be parsed by Tika. So the "only" problem is to extract the data
from the CHM file.
