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. However, if the filename ends with .info the file is assumed to be the info fork of a MacIntosh 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 parameter 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 program quits immediately.
