MIMEOPEN(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	   MIMEOPEN(1)

NAME
       mimeopen	- Open files by	mimetype

SYNOPSIS
       mimeopen	[options] [-] files

DESCRIPTION
       This script tries to determine the mimetype of a	file and open it with
       the default desktop application.	If no default application is
       configured the user is prompted with an "open with" menu	in the
       terminal.

       To use this script you need the freedesktop mime-info database and the
       freedesktop desktop-file-utils package. See
       File::MimeInfo::Applications(3) for more	details.

OPTIONS
       -a, --ask
	   Do not execute the default application but ask which	application to
	   run.	 This does not change the default application.

       -d, --ask-default
	   Let the user	choose a new default program for given files.

       -n, --no-ask
	   Don't ask the user which program to use. Choose the default program
	   or the first	program	known to handle	the file mimetype. This	does
	   not set the default application.

       -M, --magic-only
	   Do not check	for extensions,	globs or inode type, only look at the
	   content of the file.	This is	particularly useful if for some	reason
	   you don't trust the name or the extension a file has.

       --database=mimedir:mimedir:...
	   Force the program to	look in	these directories for the shared mime-
	   info	database. The directories specified by the basedir
	   specification are ignored.

       -D, --debug
	   Print debug information about how the mimetype was determined.

       -h, --help
       -u, --usage
	   Print a help	message	and exits.

       -v, --version
	   Print the version of	the program and	exit.

DEPRECATED OPTIONS
       -L, --dereference
	   Follow symbolic links.  Deprecated because this is the logical
	   default for this command.  Ignored silently.
