No problem, HamNRye, Perl doesn't discriminate against less capable systems. :)

For what it's worth, File::MMagic's built-in magic file doesn't seem to include support for Macintosh binary, but all is not lost. Grab this file and pass its pathname to the File::MMagic constructor and it will most likely work (untested on Macintosh files, since I have none to test with at the moment).

    Well, File::MMagic does not have Magic Numbers for most of what we use, but I have been able to add EPS, QXD, AI, and INDD to the list of filetypes it knows about. I have tested them on both Mac and PC files, and all is well.

    All in all, an awesome module.
