MANIFEST: MMagic.pm PROJECT: meta VERSION: 0.01
package foo; use Meta::File::MMagic qw(); my($object)=Meta::File::MMagic->new(); my($result)=$object->method();
This class extends the functionality found in File::MMagic until some improvements to that class are made.
new($) checktype_filemagic($$) checktype_filecontents($$) is_image($$) TEST($)
This is a constructor for the Meta::File::MMagic object. Currently it adds the ability to recognize css file types by using the addFileExts method.
This method is a shortcut to run checktype_magic with a file. The method will read the file contents and will pass it on to checktype_magic.
This method is a shortcut to run checktype_contents with a file. The method will read the file contents and will pass it on to checktype_contents.
This method will return whether the specified file is an image. It finds the mime type and checks whether it has "image" in it.
This is a testing suite for the Meta::File::MMagic module. This test is should be run by a higher level management system at integration or release time or just as a regular routine to check that all is well.
The procedure currently tests two files for which I know the types for validity.

-add caching capabilities to this class using Cache::MemoryCache.
-make a "best" method for matching. It is not obvious whether check_filename or check_byfilename is the best method of File::MMagic and so I need a killer combination.
