19.3.1 The filters section

The filters section allows input filters to be specified for data files whose filenames match particular wildcards. Each line should be in the format

wildcard = filter_binary

For example, the line

*.gz = /usr/bin/gzip

would set the application /usr/bin/gzip to be used as an input filter for all data files with a .gz suffix. For more information about input filters, see Section 5.1.
