Re: Determining application handlers for given mimetypes


What is the recommended way to get the application (and more
specificallycommand) incharge of handling a particular mimetype?

To have something that should not only run with Gnome but also with other
environment such as XFCE, there is a tool provided by the Portland initiative,

You won't get the command line, but you will be able to directly execute the
application with a file, if that fits your needs.

I don't know if there is a Perl module doing the same thing. But if your final
goal is the execution, it does a nice job.

I hope this helps,
