mime.convs \- mime type conversion file for cups
The \fImime.convs\fR 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 \fImime.convs\fR file or to
other files in the configuration directory (\fB/etc/cups\fR) with
the extension ".convs".
Each line in the \fImime.types\fR 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
classes.conf(5), cupsd(8), cupsd.conf(5), mime.types(5), printers.conf(5),
