CPIO MIME type detection

    Hi there,

    Is there any reason why Aperture does not seem to identify CPIO ("application/x-cpio" / "application/cpio") files correctly?  or am I doing something wrong?

    Try now, with revision 2422. I created a test file under solaris and added the mime type description.
    If it doesn't detect the mime type - please send me a test file. It seems that there are two kinds of cpio files. As of now only ones with ASCII header are supported as I couldn't generate one with binary header.

    Good work!  I note that it now supports both flavour of CPIO archives (ASCII and binary headers).

    I now have another (not directly related) question.  What is the best way to ask it?  Here in this thread or at some higher level?  If the latter, please send me the right link.

    Mylka, don't worry - I will start a new topic for my question  :-)
