The Standard library would not give me the
file type when I tried it so here is a handler
I wrote that will give the file type.
answer files "Select the file you want the type info"
put the longFilePath of line 1 of it into filePath
put number of chars in filePath into n
put "false" into geType
put empty into theType
repeat for n times
if geType = "false" then put char n of filePath before theType
put n - 1 into n
if char n of filePath = "." then put "true" into gType
if gType = "true" then exit repeat
--put theType into fld id 1098
ask "File Type" with theType
I am sure someone can write it better but it works.
