Subject PdfParser giving garbage character
Date Fri, 13 May 2016 06:28:50 GMT

I have one pdf which has data in Malyalam(Indian Language). I tried to parse this data using
apache Tika I got garbage character '?' in output.

I checked Pdf using pdffont utility seems like some tounicodetable is missing.
Output of pdffont
Config Error: No display font for 'Symbol' Config Error: No display font for 'ZapfDingbats'
**name                                 type              emb sub uni object I**D

Please find attached pdf.


                BufferedWriter writer=  Files.newWriter(new File("file-output.txt"), Charset.forName("UTF-8"));
BodyContentHandler handler = new BodyContentHandler(writer);
ParseContext pcontext = new ParseContext();
Metadata metadata = new Metadata();
       PDFParser pdfparser = new PDFParser();
       pdfparser.parse(inputstream, handler, metadata,pcontext);

Any suggestions??
