File Type detection

Both functions will return an array with following elements in case of success:

In case of failure it will return false.

Example:

$type = wapmorgan\FileTypeDetector\Detector::detectByFilename($filename);
// or
$type = wapmorgan\FileTypeDetector\Detector::detectByContent('file-without-extension');
// or
$type = wapmorgan\FileTypeDetector\Detector::detectByContent(fopen('http://somedomain/somepath', 'r'));

Mimetype generation

To get correct mimetype for file only there is getMimeType($file) function.

$mime = wapmorgan\FileTypeDetector\Detector::getMimeType($file);
// or
$mime = wapmorgan\FileTypeDetector\Detector::getMimeType(fopen('somefile', 'r'));
