Perl API to analyze and handle droid (PRONOM) signatures
License:Perl Artistic License
Function:File Format Identification

The module allows to handle Droid signatures. Droid is a utility which uses the PRONOM database to identify file formats.

See for details.

With this module you could:

  • convert Droid signatures to Perl regular expressions (Regex)
  • analyze files and display which/where pattern of Droid signature matches via tag-files for wxHexEditor
  • calc statistics about Droid signatures

The blog post shows how to analyze the signatures.
