The see, edit, compose and 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 file’s extension with
those in the mime.types files. If the encoding is omitted, it will
also be determined from the file’s extensions. Currently supported
encodings are gzip (.gz), bzip (.bz), 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 user’s files (~/.mailcap; ~/.mime.types) and the system files
(/etc/mailcap; /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for information.
