SPLITFORKS(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 					     SPLITFORKS(1)

NAME
/usr/bin/SplitForks -- Divide a two-fork HFS file into AppleDouble format resource and data files. SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/SplitForks [-s] [-v] file DESCRIPTION
SplitForks takes a Macintosh HFS or HFS Extended ("HFS+") two-fork file and converts it into AppleDouble format, with the data fork in one file and the resource fork and file system metadata in another. /usr/bin/SplitForks takes the following flags and arguments: [s] Strip the resource fork from the original file. The default is to leave the resource file in place after copying it to its Apple- Double metadata file. [v] Produce verbose diagnostics to standard output. file The file to split. 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

NAME
/usr/bin/CpMac -- copy files preserving metadata and forks SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/CpMac [-rp] [-mac] source target /usr/bin/CpMac [-rp] [-mac] source ... directory DESCRIPTION
In its first form, the /usr/bin/CpMac utility copies the contents of the file named by the source operand to the destination path named by the target operand. This form is assumed when the last operand does not name an already existing directory. In its second form, /usr/bin/CpMac copies each file named by a source operand to a destination 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. The following options are available: -r If source designates a directory, /usr/bin/CpMac copies the directory and the entire subtree connected at that point. This option also causes symbolic links to be copied, rather than indirected through, and for /usr/bin/CpMac to create special files rather than copying them as normal files. Created directories have the same mode as the corresponding source directory, unmodified by the process' umask. -p Causes /usr/bin/CpMac to preserve in the copy as many of the modification time, access time, file flags, file mode, user ID, and group ID as allowed by permissions. -mac Allows use of HFS-style paths for both source and target. Path elements must be separated by colons, and the path must begin with a volume name or a colon (to designate current directory). NOTES
The /usr/bin/CpMac command does not support the same options as the POSIX cp command, and is much less flexible in its operands. It cannot be used as a direct substitute for cp in scripts. As of Mac OS X 10.4, the cp command preserves metadata and resource forks of files on Extended HFS volumes, so it can be used in place of CpMac. The /usr/bin/CpMac command will be deprecated in future versions of Mac OS X. SEE ALSO
