Full description 'libextractor' extracts meta-data from fil'libextractor' extracts meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It uses helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and is trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. Its goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. 'libextractor' includes the command "extract" that can extract meta-data from a file and print the results to stdout. Currently, it supports the formats HTML, PDF, PS, OLE2 (doc, xls, ppt), StarOffice, OpenOffice, MAN, DVI, MP3 (ID3v1, ID3v2), OGG, WAV, JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, DEB, RPM, TAR(.GZ), ZIP, Real, QT, MPEG, RIFF (AVI), ASF, and ELF. It also detects various MIME types, and can compute hash functions (SHA-1, MD5, ripemd160). A Java binding (JNI) is available.md160). A Java binding (JNI) is available.
