FTR2MIME(1)							   FTR2MIME(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ftr2mime -	utility	to generate mailcap and	mime.type files	from ftrs

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ftr2mime [-d file.otr] [-o	<mime.type> <mailcap>]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ftr2mime is a utility used	to generate mailcap and	mime.type files	from
     the file typing rules. This tool is now used to update the	files,
     whenever new software is installed	on the system, or whenever the FTR
     databases are updated. By default it looks	in the desktop FTR database,
     /usr/lib/filetype/desktop.otr for generating the MIME type	information.
     Users can also specify a different	database with the -d option. If	the
     output file option, -o is not given, this tool prints the information
     onto the standard output.

     ftr2mime goes through all the types in the	given FTR database, and	checks
     if	the MimeType mapping rule exists. It then gets the DefaultExtension
     and AltExtensions for the exts extensions,	and MimeTypeIcon for icon, to
     generate the mime.type file.

     ftr2mime generates	the mailcap file by extracting the following
     information from the FTR rules:

	 LEGEND	       for description
	 MimePlay      for the MIME type action
	 MimeCompose   for compose
	 MimeBitmap    for x11-bitmap
