Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1199) Tika extracts weird signs instead of text
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2013 14:53:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1199?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13828985#comment-13828985

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-1199:
----------------------------------

I've just tried this file with the Apache PDFBox tool "org.apache.pdfbox.PDFBox" using the
option "ExtractText". I get the same binary stuff out too. However, the linux tool pdftotext
is able to extract the text out just fine, so it doesn't appear to be a corrupt file.

This will therefore need reporting upstream to the Apache PDFBox project
