wand: Retrieve 'Magic' Attributes from Files and Directories
Version 0.2.0

The 'libmagic' library provides functions to determine 'MIME' type and other metadata from files through their "magic" attributes. This is useful when you do not wish to rely solely on the honesty of a user or the extension on a file name. It also incorporates other metadata from the mime-db database .
