SYNOPSIS

filetype [ -s filetype-spec file ] [ -h, --help ] [ -v, --version ] [ -d, --debug ] [ --log-stdout ] [ --log-stderr ] [ --log-syslog ] [ -f namefile ] file ...

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents version 0.0.1 of the filetype command. filetype tries to classify each file given to it. The file(s) to classify can be given on the command line as usual file arguments (i.e. after the options), or in a file where the files to classify are listed on separate lines, or in standard input. filetype tests against a binary database with information about file types, which should be located at /etc/filetype.spec unless you specify otherwise with the -s option. If the file is known, information about it is printed on standard output. Otherwise the tag "Unknown" is used.

OPTIONS

-s filetype-spec file
  Use this file to test against rather than the default /etc/filetype.spec
-h, --help Show usage.
-v, --version
  Show version.
-d, --debug Print debugging messages (warning: large output)
--log-stdout
  Send verbose/debug output to stdout.
--log-stderr
  Send verbose/debug output to stderr.
--log-syslog
  Send verbose/debug output to syslog if available.
-f namefile
  A file (or stdin if ’-’) containing a list of files to test. Multiple file list can be used by using multiple ’-f file’ arguments.
