Mime type with case insensitive file extensions

Reported by: jcsousa Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.0
Component: Archetypes Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When a file have the file extension with uppercase (ex.:xpto.PPT) the detection of Mime type is incorrectly (in that case detect an Word document?!)

Steps to reproduce:
1) Add an Powerpoint file with uppercase extension: xpto.PPT - in windows this is normal :)
2) Confirm that the mime type indicates a Word document instead of an Powerpoint document

Possible solutions:
1) Change in all files the extensions names to lowercase :(
2) In mimetypes_registry add uppercase extensions :(
3) Compare only lowercase extensions :)

Steps - MimetypesRegistry:

  1. Try to determine mimetype from file extension - MimeTypesRegistry.lookupExtension()
  2. If fail, try to guest from file content - mime_types/magic.py

Quick solution - change in MimeTypesRegistry.lookupExtension():
Remove: return aq_base(self.extensions.get(ext))
Add: return aq_base(self.extensions.get(ext.lower()))
Note: Not work if in ZMI|mimetypes_registry extension only in uppercase or mixed

To improve:

  1. Check only lowercase from both sides
  2. Update magic.py (2003)
