I am not a Mac expert and do not even have one but in my project I need to know what is a type of a file. For example .WAV in Windows means a wave file but in Mac the file type is embedded in the file and not in the name.
I think the File class should have some method to get the file type in a platform independent way, currently it has only getFileExtension() method.
Maybe it exists somewhere but I didn’t find it…
What it will be for Linux?
