This class can check a file to detect its MIME type.

It can take the path of a file as a parameter to determine its type.

The class can check the file name extension and contents using the MIME Magic or FileInfo PHP extension to determine the file MIME type.

The class can return the result stored in class variables that tell if the file is of a correct MIME type or the file MIME type is the same that it was requested to check.
