FIXUPRESOURCEFORKS(1)					    BSD General Commands Manual 				     FIXUPRESOURCEFORKS(1)

/System/Library/CoreServices/FixupResourceForks -- Join AppleDouble files into two-fork HFS resource files. SYNOPSIS
/System/Library/CoreServices/FixupResourceForks [-q[uiet]] [-nosetinfo] [-nodelete] path ... DESCRIPTION
FixupResourceForks is to SplitForks what matter is to antimatter. Given one or more directories that reside on an HFS or Extended HFS ("HFS+") volume, it scans those directories for AppleDouble files and, if found, rejoins them into two-fork resource files. The resource fork data can then be accessed with normal Carbon Resource Manager calls, be processed with DeRez(1), and accessed from the POSIX file system interface through the ..namedfork/rsrc path mechanism. /System/Library/CoreServices/FixupResourceForks takes the following flags and arguments: -q[uiet] Suppress verbose diagnostics to standard output. -nosetinfo Do not set file system metadata (type, creator, flags, permissions) from the data in the AppleDouble file. -nodelete Leave the AppleDouble files in the directory after copying their resource data into the resource fork of the main file. path ... One or more directory paths. Note that FixupResourceForks only acts on entire directories, not in individual files. FILES
foo Data fork of file 'foo' NOTES
SplitForks will fail with error 2 if the designated file is not on an HFS or Extended HFS file system volume. SEE ALSO

REZWACK(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 						REZWACK(1)

/usr/bin/RezWack -- Combines resource and data forks of a file into a flattened file. SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/RezWack -d dataFork [-do dataForkOffset] -r resFork [-ro resForkOffset] -o outFileName [-f] DESCRIPTION
/usr/bin/RezWack takes the data fork of one input file, the resource fork of (possibly the same) file, and combines them into a single "flat- tened" data-fork file. This file can then be transferred to file systems, file servers, or other protocols that do not handle Macintosh HFS resource forks. QuickTime uses this format for "flattened" MooV (.moov or .mov) files. /usr/bin/RezWack takes the following flags and arguments: -d dataFork Path to the file to use as the data fork of the resulting file. This may be any data file. -do dataForkOffset Offset from the beginning of the data file from which to start reading the data. Default is the beginning of the file. -r resFork Path to the file from which to extract resource information. This must be a data-fork resource file (see Notes, below). -ro resForkOffset Offset from the beginning of the resource file from which to start reading the resource data. Default is the beginning of the resource map (byte position 512); note that any other value may result in a corrupted resource file when using UnRezWack(1). -o outFileName Path to the output file to be created. If the file exists and the -f flag is not provided, RezWack will fail with error 2. -f Force overwrite of existing output file. NOTES
The HFS and Extended HFS ("HFS+") file systems support two forks for each file in the file system. Other file systems may not support multi- fork files, and standard POSIX file system calls do not have options to specify which fork to read on a two-fork file. To use RezWack prop- erly, you must either have the resource data in a data-fork resource file, or access the named "rsrc" fork on an HFS or HFS+ volume. Note that on non-HFS volumes, or after using SplitForks(1), the resource data of a file is in a hidden file whose name begins with "._". This is an AppleDouble file that contains the resource data, but it is not a resource file and cannot be used with /usr/bin/RezWack or other tools that expect a data-fork resource file (such as DeRez(1) ). To create the resource data in the data fork, use the -useDF flag to Rez(1). When the resource data is in the data fork of a file, you can use the path to the file as the -r argument regardless of the file system. If the resource data is in the resource fork of a file on a HFS or HFS Extended file system, you can access the resource data using a named fork (for example, the resource fork of ~/foo.txt is ~/foo.txt/..namedfork/rsrc). EXAMPLES
/Developer/Tools/RezWack -d ~/foo -r ~/foo/..namedfork/rsrc -o ~/foo.wak /Developer/Tools/RezWack -d ~/foo.txt -r ~/bar.rsrc -o ~/baz.wak SEE ALSO
