NAME

       mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups (deprecated)

DESCRIPTION

       The  mime.convs  file defines the filters that are available for converting files from one
       format to another.  The standard filters support text, PDF, PostScript, and many types  of
       image files.

       Additional  filters  are  specified  in  files  with  the  extension  .convs  in  the CUPS
       configuration directory.

       Each line in the mime.convs file is a comment, blank, or filter line.  Comment lines start
       with  the  #  character.  Filter lines specify the source and destination MIME types along
       with a relative cost associated with the filter and the filter to run:

           source/type destination/type cost filter

       The source/type field specifies the source MIME media type that is consumed by the filter.

       The destination/type field specifies the destination MIME media type that is  produced  by
       the filter.

       The  cost  field specifies the relative cost for running the filter.  A value of 100 means
       that the filter uses a large amount of resources while a value of 0 means that the  filter
       uses very few resources.

       The  filter  field  specifies  the filter program filename.  Filenames are relative to the
       CUPS filter directory.

FILES

       /etc/cups - Typical CUPS configuration directory.
       /usr/lib/cups/filter - Typical CUPS filter directory.
       /usr/libexec/cups/filter - CUPS filter directory on macOS.

EXAMPLES

       Define a filter that converts PostScript documents to CUPS Raster format:

           application/vnd.cups-postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 50 pstoraster

NOTES

       CUPS filters are deprecated and will no longer be supported in a future feature release of
       CUPS.   Printers  that  do  not  support  IPP  can be supported using applications such as
       ippeveprinter(1).
