We want to allow applicants to upload a resume but we want to make sure it is either a pdf or a MS Word (.doc or .docx) file.

Some have submitted docs that have a pdf extension but cannot be opened with Adobe pdf reader.

Is there a tool that can be used, preferably in php to validate that a document is, in fact, one of the required types?
