Description

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 [1].

User Experiences

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
