Mailcap file handling. See RFC 1524.
- findmatch(caps, MIMEtype, key='view', filename='/dev/null', plist=)
- Find a match for a mailcap entry.
Return a tuple containing the command line, and the mailcap entry
used; (None, None) if no match is found. This may invoke the
'test' command of several matching entries before deciding which
entry to use.
- findparam(name, plist)
- Return a dictionary containing the mailcap database.
The dictionary maps a MIME type (in all lowercase, e.g. 'text/plain')
to a list of dictionaries corresponding to mailcap entries. The list
collects all the entries for that MIME type from all available mailcap
files. Each dictionary contains key-value pairs for that MIME type,
where the viewing command is stored with the key "view".
- Return a list of all mailcap files found on the system.
- lookup(caps, MIMEtype, key=None)
- parsefield(line, i, n)
- Separate one key-value pair in a mailcap entry.
- Parse one entry in a mailcap file and return a dictionary.
The viewing command is stored as the value with the key "view",
and the rest of the fields produce key-value pairs in the dict.
- Read a mailcap file and return a dictionary keyed by MIME type.
Each MIME type is mapped to an entry consisting of a list of
dictionaries; the list will contain more than one such dictionary
if a given MIME type appears more than once in the mailcap file.
Each dictionary contains key-value pairs for that MIME type, where
the viewing command is stored with the key "view".
- subst(field, MIMEtype, filename, plist=)
