Description Stepan Kasal 2007-07-25 15:57:06 UTC
With a usual word document, I get
$ file *.doc
foo.doc: Microsoft Installer

How comes?

I realize it might be difficult to distinguish the various OLE2 files, but in
that case `file' should clearly indicate it is uncertain.  Or better, it should
use libgsf to look into the OLE2 filesystem.

(file-4.21-2.fc8)
