Constant Summary

EMPTY_TYPE =

The content-type detection strategy is as follows:

  1. Blank/Empty files: If there's no filename or the file is empty, provide a sensible default (application/octet-stream or inode/x-empty)

  2. Calculated match: Return the first result that is found by both the `file` command and MIME::Types.

  3. Standard types: Return the first standard (without an x- prefix) entry in MIME::Types

  4. Experimental types: If there were no standard types in MIME::Types list, try to return the first experimental one

  5. Raw `file` command: Just use the output of the `file` command raw, or a sensible default. This is cached from Step 2.
