mailcap - Helper application and MIME type associations for file types

License: Public Domain and MIT
Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
The mailcap file is used by the metamail program.  Metamail reads the
mailcap file to determine how it should display non-text or multimedia
material.  Basically, mailcap associates a particular type of file
with a particular program that a mail agent or other program can call
in order to handle the file.  Mailcap should be installed to allow
certain programs to be able to handle non-text files.

Also included in this package is the mime.types file which contains a
list of MIME types and their filename "extension" associations, used
by several applications e.g. to determine MIME types for filenames.
