By using ObtainDataType() I can easily find the group, basename etc of the datatype of an object, but how do I verify if there is class available to handle it? For example ObtainDatatype() will return System binary for an executable but if I have no binary.datatype installed I will not be able to open it. I don't wish to 'test by opening' as some files in the datatset might be large and so take quite a while to process a long list file just to rject the one or two that might not be openable.
