libmagic-mgc.README.Debian 362 B

  1. Between architectures, the compiled magic at /usr/lib/file/magic.mgc
  2. differs only in the endianness. The libmagic library can auto-detect
  3. wrong endianness and handle that situation gracefully, at a significant
  4. performance cost though.
  5. Therefore: If you run file/libmagic in a mixed-endianness multi-arch
  6. setup, choose the architecture for libmagic-mgc wisely.
