perl-file-mimeinfo 0.29 Determine file type from the file name

File::Mimeinfo can be used to determine the MIME type of a file. It tries to implement the Freedesktop specification for a shared MIME database.

This package also contains two related utilities:

  • mimetype determines a file's MIME type;

  • mimeopen opens files in an appropriate program according to their MIME type.
