Projects / FileType


FileType is a file type detection engine written in C. It will appeal to coders looking for functionality similar to that provided by the 'file' command. FileType is compact (less than 20K binary), efficient, and very portable. FileType is part of the family of software created from the commercial Xamime email filtering project.

        Re: Misleading license info
        The licence was an old BSD-type licence I had drawn from another source package - my fault there. I've immediately updated the licence to the right one, should be more to your appeal.

        Misleading license info

        The license shown in the freshmeat project page is

        simply misleading. The license file in the source

        distribution is based on the BSD license, but has more

        conditions which makes it much more similar to the GPL

        than the original BSD license.

        Or am I missing the point?
