MIME Utilities

MIME stands for Multimedia Internet Mail Extensions. It is a proposed collection of file format standards for sending various kinds of non-text documents. The best known non text MIME type is the text/HTML format of web documents.

The Center has installed a publicly available MIME package from Bellcore. This package contains a suite of utilities for encoding and mailing a variety of file types, as well as system level utilities for teaching mail reader like PINE to interpret and properly display non-text mail on the fly. Some of the most useful programs are listed below. For more details, consult the man page for metamail and follow the references.
