Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2833) Add a CSV/TSV detector
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2019 19:35:00 GMT

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2833:

The real test will be against the full corpus to see how many false positives we have for

if there is a parse exception to treat whatever is left in the Reader as if it is plain text.
 We could customize the reader (wrap it in something) to capture content that is buffered
in the o.a.c.csv.CSVParser when the exception was hit.
