Configuring External MIME Type Handlers

Batavia can be trained to associate specific file types with executable programs.  This enables the user to easily view data and media files with their favourite viewer.

To train Batavia to recognize a new MIME type hander, click the File pulldown menu, click Options, and click Mime type handlers.  Select the desired MIME type (e.g., audio/midi) and click the Add button in the right-hand pane.  Type the path to the desired executable program in the text box or click the "..." button to browse.  Configure special options with the checkboxes and click the OK button when ready.

Files with associated MIME type handlers can be executed from a directory pane.
