Sample code invoking the fileGetMimeType function

Assume that you have a file named test.pdf in temp directory and test.txt in the same folder, and you want to check the MIME type. Here test.txt is a copy of test.pdf with extension renamed to txt.

	mimeTypes = '';
	mimeTypes = listAppend(mimeTypes, fileGetMimeType(expandPath('/folder1/test.pdf')));
	mimeTypes = listAppend(mimeTypes, fileGetMimeType(expandPath('/folder1/test.pdf'),false));
	mimeTypes = listAppend(mimeTypes, fileGetMimeType(expandPath('/folder1/test.txt')));
	mimeTypes = listAppend(mimeTypes, fileGetMimeType(expandPath('/folder1/test.txt'),false));

Expected Result: application/pdf,application/pdf,text/plain,text/plain
