Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-352) Add snappy decompressor that handles Apple .iwa files
Date Thu, 26 May 2016 19:33:13 GMT

Tim Allison commented on COMPRESS-352:
--------------------------------------

I regret I'm new to protobufs.  I tried a bit today to read in the uncompressed stream via
protobufs and had not much luck.  I'll try again tomorrow.  Thank you!

> 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?
