mimeopen

       mimeopen [options] [-] files

DESCRIPTION
       This script tries to determine the mimetype of a file and open it with
       the default desktop application. If no default application is
       configured the user is prompted with an "open with" menu in the
       terminal.

       To use this script you need the freedesktop mime-info database and the
       freedesktop desktop-file-utils package. See
       File::MimeInfo::Applications(3) for more details.

OPTIONS
       -a, --ask
           Do not execute the default application but ask which application to
           run.  This does not change the default application.

       -d, --ask-default
           Let the user choose a new default program for given files.

       -n, --no-ask
           Don't ask the user which program to use. Choose the default program
           or the first program known to handle the file mimetype. This does
           not set the default application.

       -M, --magic-only
           Do not check for extensions, globs or inode type, only look at the
           content of the file. This is particularly useful if for some reason
           you don't trust the name or the extension a file has.

       --database=mimedir:mimedir:...
           Force the program to look in these directories for the shared mime-
           info database. The directories specified by the basedir
           specification are ignored.

       -D, --debug
           Print debug information about how the mimetype was determined.

       -h, --help
       -u, --usage
           Print a help message and exits.

       -v, --version
           Print the version of the program and exit.

DEPRECATED OPTIONS
       -L, --dereference
           Follow symbolic links.  Deprecated because this is the logical
           default for this command.  Ignored silently.
