Default file 5.00-1

a new upstream release with some changes. please signoff.

-Andy

From:

ftp://ftp.astron.com:/pub/file/file-5.00.tar.gz

Thanks to everyone who tested, wrote code, or contributed fixes! I
bumped the version to 5.00 because there were a lot of changes in the
code that might affect how file behaves now compared to in the past (I
have not found any regressions, but there might be).

- add CDF file support (Microsoft Office <= 2007)
- add recursive magic, so we can handle ID3 files properly
- str{cat,cpy} -> strl{cpy,cat}
- --mime* flags now really work
- add --apple magic
- many encoding fixes
- read ~/.magic in addition to the default magic file not
instead of, as documented in the man page
- many magic changes
