sdp -- scripting definition (sdef) processor SYNOPSIS
sdp -f {ahst} [-o directory | file | -] [options...] [file] DESCRIPTION
sdp transforms a scripting definition (``sdef'') file, or standard input if none is specified, into a variety of other formats for use with a scriptable application. The options are as follows: -f format Specify the output format. The format may be one or more of the following. Use these when you want to create a scriptable applica- tion: a Rez(1) input describing an 'aete' resource. s Cocoa Scripting ``.scriptSuite'' file. t Cocoa Scripting ``.scriptTerminology'' file. These formats are only necessary when creating a scriptable application that will run on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or earlier; as of 10.5 (Leopard), an application may use only an sdef. Use these when you want to control a scriptable application: h Scripting Bridge Objective-C header. You do not need to create a corresponding implementation file; Scripting Bridge will create the class implementations at runtime. -i includefile Include the type and class definitions from the specified sdef. It may be repeated to specify multiple files. This option is obso- lete; you should use an XInclude element in the sdef instead. -o directory | file | - Specify where to write the output. There are three styles: directory Write the output to automatically named files in that directory. Depending on the input and formats, sdp may generate several files. file Write all the output to that file. - Write all the output to standard output. The default is '-o .'; i.e., generate files in the current directory. Because Cocoa Scripting requires each suite to be in a separate file, using -o file with -f s or -f t is usually not a good idea. Some output formats have additional options relevant only to that format. For scriptSuite and scriptTerminology files (-f s and -f t): -V version Specify the minimum system version to be compatible with, for example, ``-V -10.4''. The default is to assume the current system ver- sion. Specifying anything before 10.3 will use NSString for 'file' type attributes, and will warn about non-object direct parameters. For Scripting Bridge Objective-C header files (-f h): --basename name, -N name Specify the ``base'' name. This name becomes the base name of the generated header and the prefix attached to all the generated classes. For example, saying --basename iTunes would result in a header file ``iTunes.h'' defining a iTunesApplication class. --hidden, -A Output definitions even for items the scripting definition marks as hidden. All such definitions will be flagged as deprecated, since hidden items are usually hidden for a reason. SEE ALSO
sdef(5) BUGS
sdp's error reporting leaves much to be desired. It does not provide line numbers for errors, though it will describe the element. It will not warn you of certain types of mistakes, such as using two different names with the same code (or vice versa), and will return a zero sta- tus even for erroneous input.

macsave - Save Mac files read from standard input SYNOPSIS
macsave [ - options ] DESCRIPTION
macsave reads a sequence of Macintosh MacBinary files from standard input and writes the files it contains subject to the options speci- fied. OPTIONS
In the absence of any options, macsave reads standard input and silently writes the file(s) it contains in MacBinary format, giving the output files ".bin" extensions and placing them in the current working directory. Subdirectories are created for embedded folders. -3 Write files in fork format (.info, .data and .rsrc files.) -f As -3, but empty data and rsrc files are not created. -r Write resource forks only (.rsrc files.) -d Write data forks only (.data files.) -u As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are interchanged, the filename extension is .text. -U As -u, but there is no filename extension. -a Write files in AppleShare format. This option is only valid if the program is compiled with support for some form of AppleShare. The current directory must be a valid AppleShare folder. -s Write extracted files to standard output in MacBinary format. -l List every file extracted (and every directory/folder created etc.) -i Do not extract, give information only (implies -l.) -q Ask the user for every file/folder whether it should be extracted (implies -l.) -V Gives the patchlevel of the program, and other information. Other options are ignored and the program quits immediately. -H Give short information about the options. Other options are ignored and the program quits immediately. BUGS
As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems. SEE ALSO
