Summary: Fileinfo PHP extension try to guess the content type and encoding of a file
The functions in this module try to guess the content type and encoding of a file by looking for certain magic byte sequences at specific positions within the file. While this is not a bullet proof approach the heuristics used do a very good job. Additionally it can also be used to retrieve the mime type for a particular file and for text files proper language encoding.
