mime.types(5)			      Easy Software Products			    mime.types(5)

NAME
       mime.types - mime type description file for cups

DESCRIPTION
       The mime.types file defines the recognized file types.

       Additional  file types can be added to mime.types or in additional files in the configura-
       tion directory /etc/cups with the extension ".types".

       Each line in the mime.types file is a comment, blank, or rule line.  Comment  lines  start
       with the # character. Rule lines start with the MIME type name and are optionally followed
       by a series of file recognition rules that are used to automatically  identify  print  and
       web files:

	   super/type rule [ ... ruleN]
       The  rules may be grouped using parenthesis, joined using "+" for a logical AND and "," or
       whitespace for a logical OR, and negated using "!".

RULES
       Rules take two forms - a filename extension by  itself  and  functions  with  test  values
       inside parenthesis. The following functions are available:

       match("pattern")
	    Pattern match on filename

       ascii(offset,length)
	    True if bytes are valid printable ASCII (CR, NL, TAB, BS, 32-126)

       printable(offset,length)
	    True if bytes are printable 8-bit chars (CR, NL, TAB, BS, 32-126, 128-254)

       string(offset,"string")
	    True if bytes are identical to string

       char(offset,value)
	    True if byte is identical

       short(offset,value)
	    True if 16-bit integer is identical

       int(offset,value)
	    True if 32-bit integer is identical

       locale("string")
	    True if current locale matches string

       contains(offset,range,"string")
	    True if the range contains the string

STRING CONSTANTS
       String constants can be specified inside quotes ("") for strings containing whitespace and
       angle brackets (<>) for hexadecimal strings.
