[jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2461) Wordperfect file identified as Quattro Pro document

Johan van der Knijff commented on TIKA-2461:

Thanks for that!  I cloned the POI source repo and I located POIFSLister.java, but I have no idea how to run it (my Java skills are pretty much nonexistent!). Other option: if you could drop me a line at [hidden email] I can send you the full document by e-mail. (The doc doesn't contain any sensitive info, and there's even a PDF version somewhere on the internet, but despite that I don't want to publish it on any public platform).

>                 Key: TIKA-2461
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2461
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: detector
>    Affects Versions: 1.16
>         Environment: Linux Mint 17
>            Reporter: Johan van der Knijff
>            Priority: Minor
> While running Tika 1.16 in detect mode over some legacy files from our repository system, I came across one file with a .wpd extension for which Tika reported the following mimetype:
> {code}
> application/x-quattro-pro; version=7-8
> {code}
> Opening the file in LibreOffice reveals this is actually a WordPerfect document (not sure about which version; the .WPD extension suggests WP 6 or later). I had a look at the Quattro Pro entry in tika-mimetypes.xml:
> {code}
>       <mime-type type="application/x-quattro-pro">
>         <_comment>
>           Quattro Pro - Corel Spreadsheet (part of WordPerfect Office suite)
>         </_comment>
>         <!-- qp2 and wb3 are currently detected by POIFSContainerDetector
>             TODO: add detection for wb2 and wb1 -->
>         <glob pattern="*.qpw"/>
>         <glob pattern="*.wb1"/>
>         <glob pattern="*.wb2"/>
>         <glob pattern="*.wb3"/>
>       </mime-type>
> {code}
> This suggests that the problem originates from POIFSContainerDetector.
> For legal reasons I cannot share the original file. However I was able to create a derived file by truncating the original file after 18 kB, and this derived file shows the same behaviour. The file is available at this link:
