Register Wine as the interpreter for Windows executables


Wine is a free MS-Windows API implementation.

This package registers Wine as an interpreter for Windows executables, using the kernel binfmt_misc module. This causes Wine to be invoked automatically whenever a Windows PE (Portable Executable) file is to be launched.

WARNING: This increases the risk of inadvertently launching Windows malware, so please make sure that you understand the security risks before blindly installing this package.

This feature is probably most interesting for automatic software testing. Desktop users usually don't need it, so don't install wine-binfmt unless you know that you need it. Refer to Wine's README.debian for more information.
