FILE(1)                                                   FILE(1)

     NAME
          file - determine file type

     SYNOPSIS
          file file ...

     DESCRIPTION
          File performs a series of tests on each argument in an
          attempt to classify it.  If an argument appears to be ascii,
          file examines the first 512 bytes and tries to guess its
          language.

     BUGS
          It often makes mistakes.  In particular it often suggests
          that command files are C programs.
