Creating new FileTypes

Post by jccbin » Wed Nov 04, 2009 2:07 pm

I'd like to make a filetypelist for Adobe Illustrator files (.ai) and EPS (encapsulated PostScript) files (.eps)

I have figured out the basic .xml file, but have no idea what to put for the signatures.

Where does one get that information?

TIA

For instance, the apple file signature for an eps file is

EPSF????

Do I just convert that to hex: 45:50:53:46:3f:3f:3f:3f

and use that?

If so, what is the offset?

Ok, I opened an eps file with a hex editor. Here are the first bytes:

I'd use this string for the signature:
<Signature count="1">%!PS-Adobe-3.1\x20EPSF</Signature>
