Description Toralf 2003-02-07 17:33:45 EST
Description of problem: Something I've been thinking about for a long time: It would sometimes be practical to be able to open a file or URL the "right" way according to the desktop config from the command line, i.e. to have a single command that would simulate double-click in desktop window for normal file arguments, do something similar to "htmlview" (the current Raw Hide version that actually honours the "Preferred Applications" settings) for http type URLs etc. Enough said, I think.

Created attachment 90294 [details] Sample "fileopen" command Of course, a separate app that will do this is not hard to write; see attachment.

Created attachment 90295 [details] filetype: Just display the file type, don't open file Thought I might throw in another one for good measure; this is "filetype", which will just display the MIME type of the files (or URIs) passed on the command line. In other words, it's rather like good, old "file", but will look up information in the GNOM file type database instead of "magic".
