Your best starting place is probably What Splunk can index, in the Getting Data In manual. Splunk does not alter the source data that it processes.

Please be careful with replying to posts from 5 years ago.

The newer documentation from the Getting Data In manual is completely relevant to the question.
If you are unhappy with the documentation you can provide constructive feedback via the link at the bottom of the page for the documentation...
