List of RISC OS filetypes

This is a sub-article to RISC OS.

filetypes use metadata to distinguish file formats. Some common file formats from other systems are mapped to filetypes by the MimeMap module.[1] Such mapping was previously handled by DosMap.[1]

The MimeMap module maps filetypes to and from MIME content types, dotted filename extensions and Apple's Uniform Type Identifiers.[2][3]
