MACSTREAM(L)									     MACSTREAM(L)

NAME
       macstream - Convert a series of files to a MacBinary stream

SYNOPSIS
       macstream [ - options ] files

DESCRIPTION
       macstream  takes  the  files specified in files and combines them to a MacBinary stream on
       standard output subject to the options specified.  If  files  also  specifies  directories
       they  are  followed  recursively, and all files found will be put in the MacBinary stream,
       together with directory information.

OPTIONS
       In the absence of any options, macstream takes the specified files and  silently  combines
       them  to  a MacBinary stream, writing the result to standard output.  Directories named in
       files are followed recursively, all files found will  be  put  in  the  MacBinary  stream,
       together  with  directory information.  Files are assumed to be in MacBinary format.  How-
       ever, if the filename ends with .info the file is assumed to be the info fork of a  MacIn-
       tosh  file  split amongst more than one file.  In that case the files with .data and .rsrc
       extension are also read (if present).  Also, if the info fork is mentioned in the  parame-
       ter  list,  the	names of data and resource forks can also be mentioned, but those will be
       ignored (this is to allow wild-card expansion by the shell.)  Further,  if  some  form  of
       AppleShare  is supported by the installed program, and if the current directory, or one of
       the directories found during recursive processing, is a directory in  the  format  of  the
       supported  version  of AppleShare, those files will be handled according to the properties
       of AppleShare.

       -r     No intelligent file-processing is performed; all files  named  are  assumed  to  be
	      plain  resource  files,  and  are  written as MacIntosh resource files with creator
	      "RSED" and type "RSRC", unless another creator and/or type are specified.

       -d     No intelligent file-processing is performed; all files  named  are  assumed  to  be
	      plain  data  files, and are written as MacIntosh data files with creator "MACA" and
	      type "TEXT", unless another creator and/or type are specified.

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are interchanged.

       -U     Is a synonym for -u.

       -c creator
	      Defines the creator name to be used if one of the previous options is specified.

       -t type
	      Defines the type name to be used if one of the previous options is specified.

       -l     List every file and directory processed.

       -i     Do not output files, give information only (implies -l.)

       -q     Ask the user for every file/directory whether it should be visited (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 pro-
	      gram quits immediately.

BUGS
       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.
