Submitted: 2014-07-31 21:10 UTC Modified: -

 [2014-07-31 21:10 UTC] norbert at linuxnetworks dot de
Description:
------------
Compared to PHP 5.3 to 5.5, version 5.6RC2 returns a different mime type for binary files: "binary" instead of "application/octet-stream"


Test script:
---------------
$filename = '<name of binary file>';
$finfo = new finfo( FILEINFO_MIME_TYPE );
$mimetype = $finfo->file( $filename );
echo $mimetype . PHP_EOL;


Expected result:
----------------
PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5: application/octet-stream



Actual result:
--------------
PHP 5.6RC2: binary (invalid as all mimetypes are "type/subtype")

Do you have a file example? I get application/x-executable on a simple compiled (so, binary) file.

Test case here if needed: https://github.com/Ralt/php-src/commit/5ddce3b13751a6a4e80f73b9df108137c6e40f9d
