NAME

       mime.types - list of known MIME content-types, as used by af

DESCRIPTION

       The  mime.types  file  lists  the  known  MIME  content-types,  and the
       filename suffixes which indicate that a given file is probably of  that
       type.

       Af  uses this information to default the MIME type when sending a file.
       It is also used as the list of possible completions when af prompts for
       a MIME content-type.

       Lines  in  the  file which start with a ’#’ are treated as comments and
       ignored, as are blank lines.   Each  other  line  starts  with  a  MIME
       content-type.   The  content-type  may  be  followed  by  one  or  more
       suffixes, each separated by blank space.  Each suffix indicates that  a
       file with that suffix will default to the specified content-type.
