  • Print the MIME type of a given file:
     
    mimetype {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Display only the MIME type, and not the filename:
     
    mimetype --brief {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Display a description of the MIME type:
     
    mimetype --describe {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Determine the MIME type of stdin (does not check a filename):
     
    {{some_command}} | mimetype --stdin
     
  • Display debug information about how the MIME type was determined:
     
    mimetype --debug {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Display all the possible MIME types of a given file in confidence order:
     
    mimetype --all {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Explicitly specify the 2-letter language code of the output:
     
    mimetype --language {{path/to/file}}
