Re: copying resource forks

    Is there a straightforward way to copy the resource fork of a file into anot

    fork of a reference file.

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.
