Filebeat supports binary log file input?

Dear Filebeat team,
We set up Filebeat to tail local log files. I am wondering by any chance Filebeat supports binary file format or it needs to see "\n" as a deliminator for a new log message.


filebeat requires the "\n", to split the file contents into lines/events.

Binary formats are currently not supported. Problem with binary formats is, they need to be parsed and can follow different standards/grammar -> one can not parse binary content in a generic way, without knowing about the actual formatting.
