Guess File Type With XS (a la mod_mime_magic)

This is a port of Apache2 mod_mime_magic.c in Perl, written in XS with the aim of being efficient and fast especially for applications that need to be run for an extended amount of time.

There is a compatibility layer for FileMMagic. you can specify compat when importing the module

use FileMMagicXS qwcompat;

And then the following methods are going to be available from FileMMagicXS

checktype_filename checktype_filehandle checktype_contents addMagicEntry

Currently this software is in beta. If you have suggestions/recommendations about the interface or anything else, now is your chance to send them!
