Is there a straightforward way to copy the resource fork of a file into anot
file? I am creating a file and simply want to duplicate the resource
fork of a reference file.
and Michael Travers <firstname.lastname@example.org> responds:
The copy-file function takes a FORK keyword argument that will let you
do what you want. For some reason the online documentation doesn't
mention this keyword, but the manual does.
There was a problem with the previous version of MCL2.0 (f3): the
files must be written in the order: resource fork and then data. Reversing
the order does not produce the same effect.
