On what platform? On Windows you'd want something related to ftype/assoc 
(i.e. possibly looking at the underlying registry), on some (but 
possibly not all) unix desktops xdg-mime. In the latter cases it's very 
much dependent on the distro providing the xdg- family of tools, and 
also on there being an active desktop session (not just a remote shell).
