Thank you for your review
This application helps you to identify the type of a file. It relays on the Unix command-line utility 'file'.

It is useful if you have a file without extension or other file type identifiers. For example, some e-mail attachments.

The application also displays the MIME type.


Mac OS X 10.3 or later, this utility should work on Mac OS X 10.2 too, but no test has been done.
