regfiletype — Identify the formats of Regina data files
Between Regina versions 2.4 and 3.0, the data files changed from using an impenetrable and undocumented binary format to using (optionally compressed) XML.
This utility determines which of these formats a given Regina data file is in.
You may pass multiple files on the command line; the format of each file will be written to standard output.
