I have a code where user uploads files from the file system into the application. I wanted to restrict the users from uploading binary files. I do'nt want to check for file extensions instead use some other way of finding out from header if the file is binary or not? Does anybody know how to do this?


Thanks,

You could check the first 1024 bytes of containing binary characters. This is not a safe method, but should work for most files.
