./sysutils/file, Tool for determining file type

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.32nb1, Package name: file-5.32nb1, 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.

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.
