RUN-MAILCAP(1)			       Run Mailcap Programs			   RUN-MAILCAP(1)

       run-mailcap, view, see, edit, compose, print - execute programs via entries in the mailcap

       run-mailcap --action=ACTION [--option[=value]] [MIME-TYPE:[ENCODING:]]FILE [...]

       The see, edit, compose and print versions are just aliases that default to the view, edit,
       compose, and print actions (respectively).

       run-mailcap  (or  any  of  its  aliases)  will  use the given action to process each mime-
       type/file in turn.  Each file is specified as its mime-type, its encoding  (e.g.  compres-
       sion),  and  filename  together,  separated  by	colons.   If the mime-type is omitted, an
       attempt to determine the type is made by trying to match the file's extension  with  those
       in  the mime.types files.  If the encoding is omitted, it will also be determined from the
       file's extensions.  Currently supported	encodings  are	gzip  (.gz),  bzip  (.bz),  bzip2
       (.bz2),	and  compress  (.Z).  A filename of "-" can be used to mean "standard input", but
       then a mime-type must be specified.

       Both the user's files (~/.mailcap; ~/.mime.types)  and  the  system  files  (/etc/mailcap;
       /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for information.

	 print output.ps.gz
	 compose text/html:index.htm
	 extract-mail-attachment msg.txt | see image/tiff:gzip:-

       All options are in the form --<opt>=<value>.

	      Performs the specified action on the files.  Valid actions are view, cat (uses only
	      "copiousoutput" rules and sends output to STDOUT) , compose, composetyped, edit and
	      print.  If no action is specified, the action will be determined by how the program
	      was called.

	      Turns on extra information to find out what is happening.

	      Ignores any "copiousoutput" directive and sends output to STDOUT.

	      Displays the found command without actually executing it.
