Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1092) Parsing of old Word file causes a TikaException
Date Fri, 15 Mar 2013 00:54:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1092?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13602966#comment-13602966

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-1092:

If that does check out, we'll likely want to add something like:

  <mime-type type="application/msword2">
    <!-- Pre-OLE2, not a subtype of application/x-tika-msoffice -->
    <_comment>Microsoft Word 2 Document</_comment>
    <magic priority="50">
      <match value="0x9ba5" type="string" />
      <match value="0xdba5" type="string" />
  <mime-type type="application/msword5">
    <!-- Pre-OLE2, not a subtype of application/x-tika-msoffice -->
    <_comment>Microsoft Word 5 Document</_comment>
    <magic priority="50">
      <match value="0xfe37" type="string" />

(That's based on the magic numbers found from looking through the wv sourcecode for hints)

> I found an issue with the parse method of org.apache.tika.parser.microsoft.OfficeParser.
This parser generates a Tika Exception when it try to parse very old file of Microsoft Word.
> I think this issue is not a priority because the files that cause the exception belong
to an obsolete format/structure that even new Microsoft Office versions don't support them,
but it's important to know that something wrong about these outdated types can happen.
> I report two links about old types (Microsoft support perspective):
> http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=922850
> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922849/it
> For example, the message of TikaException is below:
> Exception in thread "main" org.apache.tika.exception.TikaException: TIKA-198: Illegal
