Subject [jira] [Reopened] (TIKA-289) Add magic byte patterns from file(1)
Date Sun, 01 Mar 2015 07:06:04 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-289?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Nick Burch reopened TIKA-289:
-----------------------------

I've just checked, and there are actually a handful of mime types defined in the file magic
which we don't have, doh! Let's add those few in, then close

Also, I wonder if we should add a reference to the file magic (probably the [github version|https://github.com/file/file/tree/master/magic/Magdir])
to the detection or similar docs, to point new people to it as a possible source of suitably
licensed magics if they can't otherwise find some?

> As discussed in TIKA-285, the file(1) command comes with a pretty comprehensive set of
magic byte patterns. It would be nice to get those patterns included also in Tika.
