Siegried is a file format identification tool that, like DROID and Fido, is based on PRONOM. However, it uses a different pattern matching algorithm that offers different strengths and weaknesses to those other PRONOM based tools. A detailed description of the tool and why it was created can be found in this blog post. Besides, there is a more detailed description in terms of functionality on the Github Page of Siegfried .
The command line tool is very easy to handle. The default output is yaml. This can be changed to csv or json. Usual command: sf file.ext (will output in yaml) Change output to csv: sf -csv file.ext Chante output to json: sf -json file.ext
It is also possible to save the output in an external file: sf file.ext >output.yml sf -csv file.ext >output.csv sf -json file.ext >output.json
