Name

regfiletype — Identify the formats of Regina data files

Synopsis

regfiletype {file...}

Description

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.

MacOS X Users

If you downloaded a drag-and-drop app bundle, this utility is shipped inside it. If you dragged Regina to the main Applications folder, you can run it as /Applications/Regina.app/Contents/MacOS/regfiletype.

Windows Users

The command-line utilities are installed beneath the Program Files directory; on some machines this directory is called Program Files (x86). You can start this utility by running c:\Program Files\Regina\Regina 4.96\bin\regfiletype.exe.
