|Description:||Shared libraries for file magic (5.07-1)|
Identifies a file's type based on the contents then provides a description or a mime type. File tests each argument in an attempt to classify it. There are three sets of tests, performed in this order: filesystem tests, magic number tests, and language tests. The first test that succeeds causes the file type to be printed.
