Doc: Move literal code block to a separate file
We need to override this snippet for the documentation we generate for Qt for Python, and it is easier to have it on a separate file. Task-number: PYSIDE-801 Task-number: PYSIDE-691 Change-Id: Ideb5b6af25024279f167137d3b65660bb9c96a7e Reviewed-by: Topi Reiniƶ <>

Applications which want to define custom MIME types need to install an
XML file into the locations searched for MIME definitions.
These locations can be queried with
- \code
- QStandardPaths::locateAll(QStandardPaths::GenericDataLocation, QLatin1String("mime/packages"),
- QStandardPaths::LocateDirectory);
- \endcode
+ \snippet code/src_corelib_mimetype_qmimedatabase.cpp 1
On a typical Unix system, this will be /usr/share/mime/packages/, but it is also
possible to extend the list of directories by setting the environment variable
\c XDG_DATA_DIRS. For instance adding /opt/myapp/share to \c XDG_DATA_DIRS will result
in /opt/myapp/share/mime/packages/ being searched for MIME definitions.
Here is an example of MIME XML:
- \code
- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
- <mime-info xmlns="">
- <mime-type type="application/vnd.qt.qmakeprofile">
- <comment xml:lang="en">Qt qmake Profile</comment>
- <glob pattern="*.pro" weight="50"/>
- </mime-type>
- </mime-info>
- \endcode

"magic" in order to detect MIME types based on data as well, read the
