    If a file argument is present and no name argument is defined, this property will be defined using the File::Basename::basename function.

  • type

    String. "It indicates the type of the object, it's a standard MIME type, like audio/mpeg or image/jpeg or video/quicktime." [1]

    If a file argument is present and no type argument is defined, the package will try setting this property using the File::MMagic package.

  • bits

    Base64-encoded binary value. The content of the object.
