             Summary: Add snappy decompressor that handles Apple .iwa files
                 Key: COMPRESS-352
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-352
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Tim Allison


On TIKA-1966, one of our users recently shared the newest iOS iWorks files.  They've gotten
rid of internal .zip and now rely exclusively on .iwa files.  commons-compress doesn't currently
appear to handle these (snappy-compressed?) files...probably because:

bq. However, the variant of Snappy that is used does not comply with the spec for that format,
omitting the stream identifier and checksum.

from  http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/wiki/IWA

Any chance you'd be able to modify the snappy decompression to handle Apple's variant?
