httpd::mtype - Mime types
package require httpd::mtype ?1.1?
The package httpd::mtype provides functionality which
determines the MIME type of a file and related utilities.
The MIME type (e.g., text/html or image/jpeg) is used by
the Document domain to dispatch out to type-specific document
handlers. For example, if there is a procedure named Doc_image/jpeg
then the Document domain will use that procedure to handle
requests for files of that type.
- Mtype path
Determines the MIME type of the file specified by path and
returns it as the result of the command.
- Mtype_ReadTypes file
Set a number of hardwired mappings from file extensions to mime types
first and then reads the specified types file to set up more.
- Mtype_Accept sock
Extract the mime-types favored by the browser making the
current request on the connection sock and returns
them as the result of the command. The result is a list.
- Mtype_Match accept type
Compares the mime type to the list of acceptable types and
return a boolean flag. If true then the type is acceptable.
- Mtype_Add suffix type
Adds a mapping from the file extension suffix
to the mime type to the database maintained by this package
