afile - display type and creator of Apple Macintosh files (netatalk format) SYNOPSIS
afile [ -a ] file ... DESCRIPTION
afile displays the name and Macintosh type and creator of the file arguments. Tests whether the file is an AppleDouble header, in which case it checks the corresponding data fork exists, or assumes it is a data fork in which case it looks for the corresponding AppleDouble to find the type/creator information. afile does not look at any of the extension mapping files such as AppleVolumes.system. OPTIONS
-a Include directories and data files of unknown type (i.e. without corresponding AppleDouble) in output. DIAGNOSTICS
returns exit status 0 if all files have a corresponding valid .AppleDouble header or data fork, or 99 for bad command line options. Other- wise it returns the following error code relating to the last invalid file. 1 file doesn't exist 2 file is unreadable 3 file is directory 4 file is AppleDouble without data fork 5 file is AppleDouble with unreadable data fork 6 file is data fork without AppleDouble 7 file is data fork with unreadable AppleDouble 8 file is data fork with short AppleDouble 9 bad magic in AppleDouble SEE ALSO

apple_dump - Dump AppleSingle/AppleDouble format file SYNOPSIS
apple_dump [-a] FILE | DIR apple_dump -f FILE apple_dump -d FILE apple_dump -h | -help | --help apple_dump -v | -version | --version DESCRIPTION
apple_dump dump AppleSingle/AppleDouble format file. OPTIONS
-a FILE|DIR This is default. Dump a AppleSingle/AppleDouble file for FILE or DIR automatically. Extrapolate FinderInfo type from absolute path. If FILE is not AppleSingle/AppleDouble format, look for .AppleDouble/FILE and ._FILE. If DIR, look for DIR/.AppleDouble/.Parent and ._DIR. -f FILE Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be FileInfo. -d FILE Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be DirInfo. -h, -help, --help Display the help and exit -v, -version, --version Show version and exit NOTE
There is no way to detect whether FinderInfo is FileInfo or DirInfo. By default, apple_dump examins whether file or directory, a parent directory is .AppleDouble, filename is ._*, filename is .Parent, and so on. If setting option -f or -d, assume FinderInfo and doesn't look for another file. SEE ALSO
