Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2473) PCX and DCX image support
Date Sat, 07 Oct 2017 05:07:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2473?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16195579#comment-16195579

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-2473:

I've added some test files, mime magic and detection. The magic for PCX I've had to set at
a slightly lower priority to avoid some false positives

I'll leave someone else to answer on the parser front!

> It's straightforward in theory to implement support for PCX and DCX. There's support
for it in Commons Imaging as well as in ImageIO via TwelveMonkeys.
> In practise, however, I'm not really sure how implement support. We obviously want to
OCR the images, but Tesseract has no support for the format. So where do we do the conversion
to a BufferedImage? I tried to look for what is done to handle JBIG2 files but I can't find
that anywhere.
