Many files are just plain text, but the filetype is helpful in that an icon
can be assigned, helping to spot the required file visually by type rather
than looking for obscure file extensions or looking at contents.

It's how RISC OS does it, and I like it that way!


PS and yes, it is actually RISC OS, not RiscOS with its pseudo camel-case.
Editor should have spotted that one!
