The mime.convs file defines the filters that are available for
converting files from one format to another. The standard filters
support text, PDF, PostScript, and many types of image files.
Additional filters are specified in files with the extension .convs
in the CUPS configuration directory.
Each line in the mime.convs file is a comment, blank, or filter line.
Comment lines start with the # character. Filter lines specify the
source and destination MIME types along with a relative cost
associated with the filter and the filter to run:
source/type destination/type cost filter
The source/type field specifies the source MIME media type that is
consumed by the filter.
The destination/type field specifies the destination MIME media type
that is produced by the filter.
The cost field specifies the relative cost for running the filter. A
value of 100 means that the filter uses a large amount of resources
while a value of 0 means that the filter uses very few resources.
The filter field specifies the filter program filename. Filenames
are relative to the CUPS filter directory.
