1 file.field.inc _file_generic_settings_extensions($element, &$form_state)

Render API callback: Validates the allowed file extensions field.

This function is assigned as an #element_validate callback in file_field_instance_settings_form().

This doubles as a convenience clean-up function and a validation routine. Commas are allowed by the end-user, but ultimately the value will be stored as a space-separated list for compatibility with file_validate_extensions().
