file upload - restricting file type

Hi Guys

 

I'm writing a script to allow for file uploads on the front end of a site.

 

I want to restrict the file upload to csv files only.

 

I can find examples for images such as

 

if ((($_FILES["file"]["type"] == "image/gif")
|| ($_FILES["file"]["type"] == "image/jpeg")
|| ($_FILES["file"]["type"] == "image/pjpeg"))
&& ($_FILES["file"]["size"] < 20000))
  {Code goes here }

 

But what do you use for CSV files?

 

And why does this example use image/ before the file type?

 

Sorry i know these are newbie questions but still new to this.

 

thanks

 

Drongo
