RUN-MAILCAP(1)               Run Mailcap Programs               RUN-MAILCAP(1)

       run-mailcap,  view,  see,  edit,  compose, print - execute programs via
       entries in the mailcap file

       run-mailcap   --action=ACTION   [--option[=value]]   [MIME-TYPE:[ENCOD-
       ING:]]FILE [...]

       The see, edit, compose and print versions are just aliases that default
       to the view, edit, compose, and print actions (respectively).

       run-mailcap (or any of its  aliases)  will  use  the  given  action  to
       process  each  mime-type/file  in  turn.  Each file is specified as its
       mime-type, its encoding (e.g. compression), and filename together, sep-
       arated by colons.  If the mime-type is omitted, an attempt to determine
       the type is made by trying to match the file's extension with those  in
       the  mime.types  files.   If  the  encoding is omitted, it will also be
       determined from the file's extensions.  Currently  supported  encodings
       are  gzip  (.gz), bzip (.bz), bzip2 (.bz2), and compress (.Z).  A file-
       name of "-" can be used to mean "standard input", but then a  mime-type
       must be specified.

       Both  the user's files (~/.mailcap; ~/.mime.types) and the system files
       (/etc/mailcap; /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for information.

              Performs the specified action on the files.  Valid  actions  are
              view,  cat  (like view but never paged) , compose, composetyped,
              edit and print.  If no action is specified, the action  will  be
              determined by how the program was called.

              Ignores  any  "copiousoutput" directive and sends output to STD-

              Displays the found command without actually executing it.
