       mime.convs - mime type conversion file for cups

       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 (preferably) to other files 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:

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