Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-917) Parser for executables (metadata)
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 18:49:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-917?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13274313#comment-13274313

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-917:

I've made a start on this in r1337962. Only a few common forms are supported, not all, and
not all the ones we have test files for

I'm not sure if the way of handling the metadata keys and options is ideal though (they're
done inline in the parser, with lots of constants), feedback would be helpful before I go
about filling in the remaining gaps!

>    Affects Versions: 1.1
>            Reporter: Nick Burch
> Based on the investigations for TIKA-913, it should be fairly easy to implement a parser
to extract metadata from executables (PE and ELF). This could give us a similar level of information
to that returned by file, eg architecture, platform, endian-ness etc
