If you have any recommendations for the more general case, let us know on TIKA-1443 [1].

Subject: Make PDFBox fail on bad pdf

Hi All,

When a pdf has bad encoding, PDFBox produces garbage (as explained in the FAQ https://pdfbox.apache.org/2.0/faq.html#gibberish).

Can I make PDFBox fail in this case instead of producing garbage?

(I'm working on a system that can also do OCR, so at the least sign of trouble, I would like
PDF box to fail and try OCR.)

Thanks,
Wouter
