NAME
/usr/bin/MvMac -- move files while preserving metadata and forks SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/MvMac source ... directory DESCRIPTION
/usr/bin/MvMac moves each file named by a source operand to a destination file in the existing directory named by the directory operand. The destination path for each operand is the pathname produced by the concatenation of the last operand, a slash, and the final pathname compo- nent of the named file. If the destination path does not have a mode that permits writing, /usr/bin/MvMac will return an error. NOTES
The MvMac command does not support the same options as the POSIX mv command, and is much less flexible in its operands. It cannot be used as a direct substitute for mv in scripts. As of Mac OS X 10.4, the mv command preserves metadata and resource forks of files on Extended HFS volumes, so it can be used in place of MvMac. The MvMac command will be deprecated in future versions of Mac OS X. BUGS
Currently doesn't work across volumes/filesystems. SEE ALSO

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

NAME
/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
