Helper application and MIME type associations for file types
The mailcap file is used by the metamail program. Metamail reads the
mailcap file to determine how it should display non-text or multimedia
material. Basically, mailcap associates a particular type of file
with a particular program that a mail agent or other program can call
in order to handle the file. Mailcap should be installed to allow

by several applications e.g. to determine MIME types for filenames.
