File is the open source implementation of the file command used on almost every free operating system (OpenBSD, Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD) and also on systems that use free software (including OS/2, DOS, MS Windows, etc.). The file command, if youre not familiar with it, is a command-line tool that tells you in words what kind of data a file contains. Unlike MS-Windows, UNIX and other systems dont rely on filename extentions to tell you the type of a file, but look at the files actual contents. This is, of course, more reliable, but requires a bit of I/O. The original file command shipped with Bell Labs UNIX but was unavailable in source form to the masses before Ians reimplementation. This file command (and magic file) was originally written by Ian Darwin (who still contributes occasionally) and is now maintained by a group of developers lead by Christos Zoulas. Whos using it? Every known BSD distribution (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Darwin/Mac OS X, etc) Every known Linux distribution The Apache httpd server mod_mime_magic module uses the file commands innards to make file type guessing more reliable under Apache HTTPD..
