A module provides basic functions for parsing mime-type names and matching them against a list of media-ranges.

Contents:
  • parse_mime_type(): Parses a mime-type into its component parts.
  • parse_media_range(): Media-ranges are mime-types with wild-cards and a “q” quality parameter.
  • quality(): Determines the quality (“q”) of a mime-type when compared against a list of media-ranges.
  • quality_parsed(): Just like quality() except the second parameter must be pre-parsed.
  • best_match(): Choose the mime-type with the highest quality (“q”) from a list of candidates.
