A wrapper script for the standalone Tika toolkit that allows conversion to plain text and indexing of a large variety of binary file types like MsWord, MsOffice, PDF, Excel, ODF, ....
eZ Tika is an extension that enables a handler for converting multiple binary file formats to plain text as used by the search engine (if you enabled those attributes as searcheable).
Currently, most common office formats are enabled (see also binaryfile.ini.append.php):
[application/pdf] [application/msword] [application/vnd.ms-excel] [application/vnd.ms-powerpoint] [application/vnd.visio] [application/vnd.ms-outlook] [application/xml] [application/rtf] [application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text] [application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.presentation] [application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet] [application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.formula] [application/zip] [application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document] [application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet] [application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation] [application/octet-stream]
