Can GIMP tell me the file type of a file it has opened. I know it
examines the magic numbers to determine how to handle it so it must
know. How can I make it tell me!!!
Or if you know of an easy way to determine file type, without relying
on the extension, from a non GIMP technique or tool.
I sent you a message offline about how to do it using a text editor.
But, I forgot some things
If you use Linux or Mac, you can type "file filenamehere" and it will
tell you a bunch of information about the file (including the type).
imagemagick comes with identify, which is a great tool, particularily
for image files.
