NAME
       run-mailcap,  view,  see,  edit,	 compose, print - execute programs via
       entries in the mailcap file

SYNOPSIS
       run-mailcap   --action=ACTION   [--option[=value]]   [MIME-TYPE:[ENCOD‐
       ING:]]FILE [...]

       The see, edit, compose and print versions are just aliases that default
       to the view, edit, compose, and print actions (respectively).

DESCRIPTION
       run-mailcap (or any of its  aliases)  will  use	the  given  action  to
       process	each  mime-type/file  in  turn.	 Each file is specified as its
       mime-type, its encoding (e.g. compression), and filename together, sep‐
       arated by colons.  If the mime-type is omitted, an attempt to determine
       the type is made by trying to match the file's extension with those  in
       the  mime.types	files.	 If  the  encoding is omitted, it will also be
       determined from the file's extensions.  Currently  supported  encodings
       are  gzip  (.gz), bzip (.bz), bzip2 (.bz2), and compress (.Z).  A file‐
       name of "-" can be used to mean "standard input", but then a  mime-type
       must be specified.

       Both  the user's files (~/.mailcap; ~/.mime.types) and the system files
       (/etc/mailcap; /etc/mime.types) are searched in turn for information.

   EXAMPLES
	 see picture.jpg
	 print output.ps.gz
	 compose text/html:index.htm
	 extract-mail-attachment msg.txt | see image/tiff:gzip:-

   OPTIONS
       All options are in the form --<opt>=<value>.

       --action=<action>
	      Performs the specified action on the files.  Valid  actions  are
	      view,  cat  (uses only "copiousoutput" rules and sends output to
	      STDOUT) , compose, composetyped, edit and print.	If  no	action
	      is  specified,  the action will be determined by how the program
	      was called.

       --debug
	      Turns on extra information to find out what is happening.

       --nopager
	      Ignores any "copiousoutput" directive and sends output  to  STD‐
	      OUT.

       --norun
	      Displays the found command without actually executing it.
