updated slk.trid.xml for SYLK - SYmbolic LinK data
« on: April 01, 2020, 03:05:58 AM »
Hello trid users,

some days ago i used SoftMaker Office. The spreadsheet module can
read/read documents with filename extension slk.

When running TrID on samples with file name extension SLK inspected examples
are described as "SYLK - SYmbolic LinK data" by slk.trid.xml (See appended
output/trid-v-old.txt).

My inspected examples have file name extension slk, but according to
documentation at reposcope or FreeDesktop.org also extension sylk can be
used. This is expressed by changed line:

   <Ext>SLK/SYLK</Ext>

No Mime type is shown by current trid definition. The documentation mention
mime type "text/spreadsheet", but Gnumeric and sometimes PlanMaker register
a user defined one. That is expressed by new line:

      <Mime>application/x-sylk</Mime>

With the updated trid definition now i also have mime type. ( See appended
output/trid-v-new.txt).

The TrID definitions, output are stored in archive slk.zip. I hope that my
XML file can be used in future version of triddefs.

With best wishes
Jörg Jenderek
