./sysutils/file, Tool for determining file type

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.28, Package name: file-5.28, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

File tests each argument in an attempt to classify it. There are
three sets of tests, performed in this order: file system tests,
magic number tests, and language tests.

This package also includes the magic number recognition libraries.

This implementation of file(1) is the standard "file" command for
Linux, *BSD, and other systems. It (as well as the magic file)
was originally written by Ian Darwin and is now maintained by a
group of developers lead by Christos Zoulas.

        * Errors comparing DER entries or computing offsets
          are just indications of malformed non-DER files.

        * Offset comparison was off-by-one.
        * Fix compression code (Werner Fink)
        * Put new bytes constant in the right file (not the generated one)
