          TrID File Identifier / str-office.trid.xml for LibreOffice Gallery (*.str)
          « Last post by jenderek on October 31, 2019, 04:29:57 PM »
          Hello trid users,
          some days ago i run TrID inside LibreOffice directories. In sub directory
          gallery there files of Office Galleries are stored. The samples with file
          str name extension are described as "Unknown!"  ( see appended
          output/trid-old.txt).

          The file command {en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_(command)} describes the
          str-files as "UTF-8 Unicode text". See appended output/file.txt.

          The str format is not used in old StarOffice 5.2 dated about May 2000
          and OpenOffice 4.1.6. I found such str samples in LibreOffice with version
          6.3.2.2. Unfortunately i found no documentation about such gallery file
          format. So i use LibreOffice page on Wikipedia as reference URL by line:
             <RefURL>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LibreOffice</RefURL>

          So i run tridscan to generate a definition file str-office.trid.xml.
          Most samples start with a comment line like:
          # Translated by desktop-translate and ulfex
          This is expressed by corresponding XML construct. Because of missing exact
          file specification i find on the net the example puzzle.str without such
          comment line. So this example is not recognized.

          A translation line starts with the phrase name followed by a language
          abbreviation in brackets. Afterward comes a equal sign followed by gallery
          theme name in corresponding language.
          So in most cases the main file name like in sample like sounds.str is also
          the English gallery name triggered by line like:
          name[en]=Sounds

          But this not always. For sample education.str the English text is triggered
          by like
          name[en]=School & University
          In German LibreOffice for first example shown theme name is triggered by
          line like:
          name[de]=Klänge
          In Italian LibreOffice for first example shown theme name is triggered by
          line like:
          name[it]=Suoni

          The theme name is also stored in corresponding thm file. But only one string
          for theme name is stored and without coding information. So in German
          OpenOffice 4.1.6 for example sg9.thm with object /sounds/apert.wav string
          "Kl\303\244nge" is stored. In German LibreOffice 6.3.2.2 then file now
          becomes sounds.thm with stored English name "sounds". By additional str the
          gallery name is shown translated in user language.

          With the new trid definition most STR examples are now described ( see
          appended output/trid-new-v.txt).
          TrID definition, some examples and output are stored in archive str.zip.
          I hope that my XML file can be used in future version of triddefs.

          With best wishes

            TrID File Identifier / 2 definitions for Star-, Open-, Libre-Office Gallery (*.sdv)
            « Last post by jenderek on October 29, 2019, 01:18:00 AM »
            Hello trid users,

            some days ago i run TrID inside LibreOffice directories. In sub
            directory gallery there files of Office Galleries are stored. The
            samples with file name extension sdv are described as "Generic OLE2 /
            Multistream Compound File" by docfile.trid.xml ( see appended
            sdv_big/output/trid-old.txt).

            The newest file command {en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_(command)}
            describes some of the sdv-files as "StarOffice Gallery view". See
            appended sdv_big/output/file-new.txt.

            So i run tridscan to generate a definition file sdv.trid.xml. Unfortunately
            i found no documentation about such gallery file format. At least one note
            is mentioned on sub page about StarOffice binary formats on file formats
            archive team site. This is expressed by reference line:
               <RefURL>
               http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/wiki/StarOffice_binary_formats
               </RefURL>

            Apparently such SDV files already seems to start with the same 44 bytes
            sequence. This is expressed by first XML construct like:

            <Bytes>
            D0CF11E0A1B11AE1000000000000000000000000000000003B000300FEFF09000600
            </Bytes>
            <Pos>0</Pos>

            The first 8 bytes are the magic of Generic OLE2 / Multistream Compound
            File as used by docfile.trid.xml where first XML construct looks like:
            <Bytes>D0CF11E0A1B11AE1</Bytes>
            <Pos>0</Pos>

            I keep the remaining bytes after offset 8. According to OLE2
            documentation the 2 byte sequence FEFF means little endian. When these
            two bytes are swapped then this would be a big endian variant. The
            0900 is the exponent for basis 2. This means used block size is
            512=2**9. The byte sequence 3B000300 is the OLE2 format version 3.59.
            The byte sequence 0600 means size of a short-sector is 64=2**6.

            I removed the remaining patterns, because the pattern seems to be not
            interesting. For example the end of first block is padded with FF byte
            sequences.

            According to OLE2 documentations the root storage has UTF-16 name
            "Root Entry". This is described in global string section by line

               <String>R'O'O'T' 'E'N'T'R'Y</String>

            The SDV files recognized by file command are always bigger than the
            others. Or in other words the file size is apparently higher the 2048
            bytes.

            When inspecting such big SDV files with software like Michal Mutl
            Structured Storage Viewer {https://www.mitec.cz/ssv.html}, we see that
            big samples contains some sub directories or streams in OLE2 speech. The
            names of these streams seems to start always with dd followed by
            decimal digits. This is described in global string section by line like:

               <String>D'D'2</String>

            And if streams are not empty, these streams seem to start with string
            SVRLE. This is expressed in global string section by line like:

               <String>SVRLE</String>

            I also look for older versions. The same gallery format is used in old
            StarOffice 5.2 dated about May 2000. And the format is still used in actual
            LibreOffice with version 6.3.2.2 and it also used in OpenOffice
            4.1.6.

            Some sites on the net call the SDV samples like "OpenOffice.org
            gallery storage", but such files are already used in predecessor
            software StarOffice. And on ask.libreoffice.org the sdv parts are
            called "gallery view". That phrase is also used by file command.
            So i choose as describing text by line something like:

               <FileType>StarOffice Gallery view (big)</FileType>

            I used the user defined mime type shown by file command by line:

               <Mime>application/x-star-sdv</Mime>

            With the new trid definition sdv.trid.xml all big SDV examples are now
            described ( see appended output/sdv_big/trid-new-v.txt).

            The other SDV variant files have a file size of 2048 bytes. When
            inspecting such samples with Structured Storage Viewer, we see that
            such samples does not contain any streams. That means no characteristic
            strings like SVRLE or streams names starting with dd are found.

            So i run tridscan to generate a trid definition file
            sdv-small.trid.xml, which seems to be unique for such SDV files and
            does not match other OLE2 files. I rearrange the XML constructs to be
            ready to clean trid definition.

            The first XML is nearly the same as in the other variant but with an
            additional 01000000 byte sequence at offset 44. This means the total
            number of sectors used for the sector allocation table is always 1.
            Not surprisingly because with a file size of 2048 and a block size of
            512 such SDV samples only consist of 4 blocks.


            According to output of file command ( See appended
            output\file-new-soft.txt) for most samples directory sector identifier
            (SecID) is 1 and for some 2. This number is stored as 4 byte integer
            at offset 48. So byte at that offset is 1 or 2  and we get a gap in
            constant byte sequence and second XML construct looks like

               <Bytes>0000000000000000100000FEFFFFFF00000000
               <Pos>49</Pos>

            That also means in most cases block 3 is directory structure and in
            some cases block 4 is the directory structure, which starts with
            OLE2 typical UTF-16 string "ROOT ENTRY".

            The 2 last blocks are always constant. So pattern at position 1024 and
            1536 starts like

               <ASCII> R . o . o . t .   . E . n . t . r . y .

            With the second trid definition sdv-small.trid.xml all small SDV
            examples are now described ( see appended output/trid-new-v.txt). 2 TrID
            definitions, some examples and output are stored in archive sdv.zip.

            I hope that my XML file can be used in future version of triddefs.

            Furthermore a gallery consist of some files. For every gallery beside
            the SDG file there seems to exist files with same main name but with
            extension sdv, thm and sometimes str. The last is not identified by
            trid. I will try to handle the last file type in a future session.

            With best wishes
            Jörg Jenderek
