#540 in Text processing
An expert system for recognizing source file, similar to GitHub/linguist, but written in Rust.
The program can also read the files from
STDIN like this:
Each output line contains the filename and the file type separated by the tab character.

Started around November 2017. Replaced with a Nim implementation in December
2018, because at this point the GitHub/linguist heuristics were a huge mess of
if … else Ruby spaghetti code.
This project was archived until January 2019. My Nim implementation was broken by the compiler update. While fixing it I noticed that the GitHub/linguist heuristics were refactored to a YAML file. This opened up the possibility to easily autogenerate the heuristics rules. So I started working on the Prolog implementation again.
During the COVID-19 Summer in June 2021 I got proficient enough to rewrite this project in Rust. The main benefit is the sheer performance gain.
