Subject [jira] [Created] (TIKA-1434) Plain text file reported as binary
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 15:18:33 GMT
Marco Quaranta created TIKA-1434:

             Summary: Plain text file reported as binary
                 Key: TIKA-1434
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1434
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: detector, mime
    Affects Versions: 1.6
            Reporter: Marco Quaranta
            Priority: Minor

Mime type detection of the attached file, an ASCII file, reports application/octect-stream.
The negative result is caused by ASCII-extended characters in the file; TextStatistics.isMostlyAscii()
calls return false. We could try to call TextDetector.detect() two times: if the first call
fails, then we can try to convert bytes in utf-8 and call it again. What do you think?
