7.4.3. Other Application subtypes

It is expected that many other subtypes of application will be defined in the future. MIME implementations must generally treat any unrecognized subtypes as being equivalent to application/octet- stream.

The formal grammar for content-type header fields for application data is given by:

   application-type :=  "application" "/" application-subtype

   application-subtype := ("octet-stream" *stream-param)
                       / "postscript" / extension-token

   stream-param :=  (";" "type" "=" value)
                       / (";" "padding" "=" padding)

   padding := "0" / "1" /  "2" /  "3" / "4" / "5" / "6" / "7"
