NAME
       mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups (deprecated)

DESCRIPTION
       The mime.convs file defines the filters that are	available for convert-
       ing files from one format to another.   The  standard  filters  support
       text, PDF, PostScript, and many types of	image files.

       Additional  filters are specified in files with the extension .convs in
       the CUPS	configuration directory.

       Each line in the	mime.convs file	is a comment, blank, or	 filter	 line.
       Comment	lines  start  with  the	# character.  Filter lines specify the
       source and destination MIME types along with a relative cost associated
       with the	filter and the filter to run:

	   source/type destination/type	cost filter

       The source/type field specifies the source MIME media type that is con-
       sumed by	the filter.

       The destination/type field specifies the	destination  MIME  media  type
       that is produced	by the filter.

       The  cost  field	specifies the relative cost for	running	the filter.  A
       value of	100 means that the filter uses a  large	 amount	 of  resources
       while a value of	0 means	that the filter	uses very few resources.

       The  filter field specifies the filter program filename.	 Filenames are
       relative	to the CUPS filter directory.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/cups - Typical CUPS configuration	directory.
       /usr/lib/cups/filter - Typical CUPS filter directory.
       /usr/libexec/cups/filter	- CUPS filter directory	on macOS.

EXAMPLES
       Define a	filter that converts PostScript	documents to CUPS Raster  for-
       mat:

	   application/vnd.cups-postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 50 pstoraster

NOTES
       CUPS filters are	deprecated and will no longer be supported in a	future
       feature release of CUPS.	 Printers that do not support IPP can be  sup-
       ported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).
