>                 Key: TIKA-2473
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2473
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: parser
>    Affects Versions: 1.16
>            Reporter: Matthew Caruana Galizia
>            Priority: Major
> 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.
