Manual Reference Pages - RUN-MAILCAP (1)
run-mailcap, view, see, edit, compose, print - execute programs via entries in the
run-mailcap --action=ACTION [--option[=value]]
print versions are just aliases that default to the view, edit, compose, and
print actions (respectively).
run-mailcap (or any of its aliases) will use the given action to process each
mime-type/file in turn. Each file is specified as its mime-type,
its encoding (e.g. compression), and filename together, separated by
colons. If the mime-type is omitted, an attempt to determine the type
is made by trying to match the files extension with those in the
mime.types files. If no mime-type is found, a last attempt will be done by
file command, if available. If the encoding is omitted, it will also be
determined from the files extensions. Currently supported encodings
bzip2 (.bz2), and
compress (.Z). A filename of "-" can be used to mean "standard input", but
then a mime-type
must be specified.
Both the users files (~/.mailcap; ~/.mime.types) and the system files
(/etc/mailcap; /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for information.

program was called.

Ignores any "copiousoutput" directive and sends output to STDOUT.
