module Object::ContentType

Public Instance Methods

of(path) → aString or +nil+ click to toggle source

Get the MIME-Type of the file living at path. Either by looking directly into the file (requires FileMagic), or, assuming path might denote a URI, by asking the web server (via OpenURI), or finally by just looking at the file extension (requires MIME::Types). Returns nil in case no decision could be made.

NOTE: This is really only useful with the filemagic and mime-types gems installed.
