mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups
The mime.convs file defines the filters that are available for converting files from one format to another. The standard filters support
text, PDF, PostScript, HP-GL/2, and many types of image files.
Additional filters can be added to the mime.convs file or (preferably) to other files in the CUPS configuration directory.
Each line in the mime.convs file is a comment, blank, or filter line. Comment lines start with the # character. Filter lines specify the
source and destination MIME types along with a relative cost associated with the filter and the filter to run:
super/type super/type cost filter
application/postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 50 pstoraster
