ADDDATATYPES AmigaDOS
Purpose: To build a list of data types that datatypes.library can understand.
Format: ADDDATATYPES {FILES} [QUIET] [REFRESH] [LIST]
Template: FILES/M, QUIET/S, REFRESH/S, LIST/S
Path: C:ADDDATATYPES
ADDDATATYPES is used by the datatypes.library to build a list of data types that it can understand. DataType descriptors are stored in DEVS:DataTypes.

ADDDATATYPES can also be called by application Installation scripts to add their own data types to the list. Basically, ADDDATATYPES is not a user program.

The FILES option specifies the name(s) of the DataType descriptors to add to the list of DataType descriptors.

The QUIET option, if specified, will suppress error and output messages.

The REFRESH option, if specified, will scan the DEVS:DataTypes directory for new or changed DataType descriptors.

The LIST option, if specified, will list all DataTypes currently defined in DEVS:DataTypes.

Example 1:

3.OS4:> ADDDATATYPES LIST
8svx, "8SVX"
aiff, "AIFF"
amigaguide, "AmigaGuide"
ascii, "ascii"
binary, "binary"
bmp, "BMP"
directory, "directory"
ascii, "FTXT"
gif, "GIF"
iff, "iff"
ilbm, "ILBM"
jpeg, "JPEG"
