Subject PDF and MS Word Metadata question: page counts
Date Thu, 22 Jul 2010 15:22:30 GMT
Just a curiousity:  I'm currently using tika 0.7 for some simple text extraction, and noticed
that for some reason I can't access page counts for either PDF or Word documents.

I know the information is available via underlying library calls (e.g., PDF box) and appears
it should be available via extended information in the MS Office parser, but I don't see it
in the metadata of any documents I tried.  My question is, was there some reason why page
counts are omitted?  I hacked my local copy of PDFParser to provide such via the PDDocument.getNumberOfPages()
call,  but was wondering if I missed something somewhere or there might be a reason to not
provide such information.  For the Word documents, I guess since it should be provided, guess
I'm out of luck there, but for my purposes, I'd like at least parsed PDF metadata to provide
that information if possible...  Thanks!
