Determine a Document Reader

The format detection module uses the formats_e.ini file to determine whether a format is supported and which reader should be used to parse a format. The entries in the formats_e.ini file lists each format’s coded value, and an abbreviation for the format’s reader. For example:

The reader abbreviation is a truncated version of the reader’s library name. Adding “sr” to the end of an abbreviation creates the name of the reader. The example entry above specifies that a Lotus 1-2-3 Spreadsheet file version 9.0 is parsed by the Lotus 1-2-3 reader, l123sr.
