[EP-tech] get_mime_type?

Might be worth mentioning that there is a function in bin/epadmin to redo mime types.

If you upgraded from 3.3.1 to 3.3.2, a suggestion to run this was made, but you can run it if it looks like your mime types are not quite right (and as file type detection improves).

>From the perldoc:
epadmin redo_mime_type repository_id dataset [ objectid, ... ]
    Re-run the file format identification. Dataset may be one of 'document' or 'file'. If 'document' only re-does the identification of the main files in documents.

Hi Tomasz,

> How would I get the mime_type of a document in EPrints?

refering to ~/Eprints/perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj/Document.pm imho
$doc->get_value( "mime_type" );
does the job!?
