python2-magic 0.4.15 File type identification using libmagic

This module uses ctypes to access the libmagic file type identification library. It makes use of the local magic database and supports both textual and MIME-type output. Note that this module and the python-file module both provide a "" file; these two modules, which are different and were developed separately, both serve the same purpose: to provide Python bindings for libmagic.
