       xfm_mime.types - suffix based fall back mime type information


       When  xfm(1)  cannot  determine  the type of a file using the values in
       xfm_magic(5), this file is used to guess a type of a  file.   The  file
       shipped   with   xfm  by  default  just  tells  to  include  the  files
       ~/.mime.types and /etc/mime.types to get the system wide settings.


       There is one entry per line.  Empty lines and  lines  starting  with  a
       hash (#) are ignored.  Prior entries overwrite later ones.

       If  a  line  starts  with  !include  or include the rest of the line is
       treated as a filename to process before continuing with the rest of the
       file.   (If  the  filename starts with a tilde followed by a slash, the
       tilde is replaced by the content of the HOME environment variable.)

       Other lines contain the name of a mime type followed  by  an  arbitrary
       number of filename suffixes, separated by spaces or tabs.

       A file that got no other type associated by content and whose name ends
       with a dot followed by the specified suffix, will be  treated  as  type
       mime type.

       Xfm only recognizes suffixes with at most 7 characters.


       Otherwise unidentified files anding in .c are treated as text/x-csrc:
       text/x-csrc                                     c
       Same with .c++, cpp, cxx or cc as text/x-c++src:
       text/x-c++src                                   c++ cpp cxx cc


              Unless  xfm(1)  is  told  to  look  at  a  different place via X
              resource Xfm.mimeTypesFile, this is the first  place  xfm  looks
              for a file with the describes format.

              If the first file does not exists, xfm(1) (unless it gets told a
              different place via the X resource  Xfm.systemwideMimeTypesFile)
              looks for this file.
