Sorry!
I have forgotten to add the new trid defiition.
Now attached the updated ark-ar-archiver.trid.xml.
lib-coff.trid.xml has to be changed in the same way.
And also name has to be changed into a more generic one as proposed.

Hi!

In the attached ZIP file there's only one definition, lib-coff.trid.xml, and it's identical to the current one.
Maybe you uploaded the wrong one?

Thanks for the updated/new defs, as usual!

Hello trid users,

some days ago i run TrID with verbose option again on some Mozilla
database files found inside Thunderbird profile directory ( see
appended output/trid-v-old.txt).

Mozilla Address Book samples like abook.mab are described by definitions
mab.trid.xml, but no mime type is shown. Because such samples are just
text files at least this should be expressed by additional line like:
   <Mime>text/plain</Mime>

Furthermore the URL http://www.mozilla.org is too generic. Instead on
Wikipedia there exist a page about that Mozilla mork file format. This
is now expressed by line:
   <RefURL>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mork_(file_format)</RefURL>

Some Mozilla Mail Summary files like maildir-joerg-2.msf are not
detected. After running tridscan in global strings section 1 line vanish:
   <String>NUMREFS</String>

Third mork variant like sample panacea.dat is is not detected by trid.
This is identified by newest file command utility ( See
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_(command)) as "Mozilla Mork
database, version 1.4, mail folder cache" ( see appended
output/file-new.txt).

After running tridscan on all my panacea.dat files and deleting lines
in global section i finally get dat-mork.trid.xml.

With new trid definitions all three Mozilla mork files are now
described ( see appended output/trid-v-new.txt) more precisely also
with mime type. TrID definitions, some examples and output are stored
in archive mab.zip. I hope that my 3 XML files can be used in future
version of triddefs.

With best wishes

Hello trid users,

in march 2019 i run TrID with verbose option again on hundreds of
ar-archives and libraries described in general by
ark-ar-archiver.trid.xml as "ar archive". ( see appended
output/trid-v-old.txt)

On Microsoft often instead "a" extension "lib" extension is used like
in examples lldMinGW.lib or ghostscript gsdll32.lib. So in updated
ark-ar-archiver.trid.xml this is now expressed by
   <Ext>AR/A/LBR/LIB</Ext>

According to newest Wikipedia page about "ar (Unix)" a specific mime
type instead "application/octet-stream" is used. This is now expressed
by line
   <Mime>application/x-archive</Mime>

Furthermore i am missing a remark about the LBR extension. Where is
this extension used for ar-archives? Maybe nowadays an exotic system
like commodore c64?

The same consideration also applies to trid definition file
lib-coff.trid.xml. But here things are even worse. Now look at sample
libz.a found inside mysql-debug-4.1.22-hp-hpux11.00-hppa2.0w.tar.gz
for example. This is identified by file command utility version 5.36
as "current ar archive - PA-RISC1.1 relocatable library" ( see
appended output/file-5.36.txt). So this library variant as mentioned
in former posts is used in operating systems such as HP-UX 11.0 as
decribed on wikipedia page.  There an file format is used named as
"SOM". See also
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Object_Model_(file_format)

That is other than "COFF" when looking at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_executable_file_formats.
This can also be seen when extracting library member by command like
"ar x". So HP libray contains object file like adler32.o. This is
identified by file tool correctly as "PA-RISC1.1 relocatable object".
Also trid identifies this as "PA-RISC 1.1 object code (generic)".

On the other hand the ghoscript library contains object files like
1.GSDLL32.dll. This is identied by file tool as "Intel 80386 COFF
object file". Trid also identifies this as "Intel 80386 Common Object
File Format (COFF) object".

So conclusion is:
By current lib-coff.trid.xml not only COFF libraries are described.
So this trid defintion is for file type maybe described by phrase like
"System V (or GNU) 32 bit library variant".

With new trid definition all libraries are now described ( see
appended output/trid-v-new.txt) more precisely . TrID definition, some
examples and output are stored in archive ar_trid.zip. I hope that the
XML file can be used in future version of triddefs.

With best wishes
