Tim Hill's comprehensive mimemap file

RISC OS mimemap from timil.com
Fourthly, here is my mimemap file. The textual file 'mimemap' as provided here is the local version of a data file for the system module MimeMap. Together they provide other parts of RISC OS and its applications with the ability to understand 'foreign' filetypes denoted by file extensions or MIME types when transmitted over the internet. This is what enables a .jpeg to be received by email, over the web, or read from a Sunfish share, to be correctly filetyped as JPEG and correctly displayed as such by the filer. Various versions of the mimemap file are or have been distributed with various versions of RISC OS. All I am trying to do here is provide a consistent resource that can be used across all RISC OS versions. It is freely distributable and fully editable. I am using the same file with both Iyonix and Raspberry Pi 2B. My primary purpose is to keep them both working optimally, hence I hope to keep this file as up-to-date as possible. The link will load the file 'mimemap' into your browser. All remaining information is there.
