file Documentation


Determines file type using "magic" numbers
File tests each argument in an attempt to classify it. There are three
sets of tests, performed in this order: filesystem tests, magic number
tests, and language tests. The first test that succeeds causes the
file type to be printed.
Starting with version 4, the file command is not much more than a wrapper
around the "magic" library.
