mimeopen - Open files by mimetype
mimeopen [options] [-] files
This script tries to determine the mimetype of a file and open it with the default desktop application. If no default application is configured the user is prompted with an "open with" menu in the terminal.
To use this script you need the freedestop mime-info database and the freedesktop desktop-file-utils package. See File::MimeInfo::Applications(3) for more details.
No known bugs, please mail the author if you find one.
See File::MimeInfo::Applications(3) and File::DesktopEntry(3) for some limitations.
