./databases/shared-mime-info, Core database of common types

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.4nb1, Package name: shared-mime-info-2.4nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Many programs and desktops use the MIME system to represent the types of
files. Frequently, it is necessary to work out the correct MIME type for
a file. This is generally done by examining the file's name or contents,
and looking up the correct MIME type in a database.

For interoperability, it is useful for different programs to use the same
database so that different programs agree on the type of a file, and new
rules for determining the type apply to all programs.

This package contains the core database of common types and the
update-mime-database command used to extend it.
