NAME
       mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups

DESCRIPTION
       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, HP-GL/2, and many types of image files.

       Additional filters can be added to the mime.convs file or to other
       files in the configuration directory (/etc/cups) with the extension
       ".convs".

       Each line in the mime.types 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:

       super/type super/type cost filter
       application/postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 50 pstoraster
