rsrce - editor for raw MacOS resource forks
Rsrce is command driven Macintosh resource fork editor for Unix-like
Rsrce doesn’t allow you to edit the resource data directly. It only
knows to import/export them from/to files, performing conversion for
the few resource types it knows.
If a filename is given on the command-line, the resource are read from
the file when rsrce is launched.
Resources are referred to by specifing their type and id, separated by
a colon. I mean, something like "STR#:128". If the type field
contains less than 4 letters, spaces are added to complete it.
The following commands are available:
read the resources from file
write the resources to file
ls list resources (type, id, attributes, data lenght, name)
show an hexdump of resource’s data
import|export resource file
import/export resource’s data from/to file
invoke an external editor to change resource’s data
help list available commands
exit terminate rsrce (without saving, use write before exit if you
wish to save your changes)
Rsrce has only been originally created to change the configuration of
the miBoot Linux bootloader for OldWorld PowerMac computers. Since I
do not use MacOS, I haven’t tested any other usage of this program.
You should therefore be very careful when using it, as it could very
well produce unusable output.
Another consequence of this is wildly missing functionnality. I’m not
going to work on it, since I couldn’t test anything in a real
situation. Patches and/or usage reports would be very welcome.
