List of 3rd party parser plugins

These are 3rd party parser plugins which cannot be included due to licensing incompatibiliy. To install a plugin, download it according to instructions below and drop the jar(s) on your classpath. Tika will auto detect the plugin.

Microsoft TNEF / LZFU

This is a MS compression format used for compressed RTF, email attachments (like WINMAIL.DAT) and more. The parser is available from a github fork of the JTNEF project.

(Tika 0.10 includes a TNEF parser as standard now, which may be sufficient)
