Quickzi: How to determine file types on Linux

Need to find out what all the file types in a certain directory are? Simple!

Execute the following on the command line:

find /path/here/ -type f -print | xargs file

I typed: find /home/adam/test/ -type f -print | xargs file

The output will look something like this:

/home/adam/test/music.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 44100 Hz
/home/adam/test/package.deb: Debian binary package (format 2.0)
/home/adam/test/file.tar.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Tue Jun 20 12:51:11 2006
/home/adam/test/widget.xml: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators
/home/adam/test/logfile.txt: empty

Cheers!
