Re: what files does beagle index?

Any idea how to determine what Beagle will see as a given file's
mimetype?  Is there a gnome mime-type tool similar to "file"?

$ gnome-vfs-info (or some variant of it) /path/to/file
Or even better,
$ beagle-extract-content /path/to/file
It will tell you what mimetype beagle thinks. beagle-extract-content
will return you the same metadata and data that beagle extracts from a
file. So, if there is no filter it will say "no filter found" o/w it
will list the words found. After you write an external filter, you can
use beagle-extract-content to test the filter.
Once you are done with testing, you have to put it in the right place
and (I think) restart beagle.
