You're in the wrong mailing list. This is the PDFBox mailing list. While 
PDFBox is a part of TIKA and the two projects are kindof "best friends 
forever", this doesn't mean that PDFBox users all know how to use TIKA.

However I suspect that you actually used the "<" and ">". The "<" and 
">" are there to explain a concept. So your command line would probably be

java -jar tika-app.X.Y.jar -J -t -i f: -o g:
