Reading Resource Fork Data from old files


Recommended Posts

I am trying to read and manipulate data from files written using OS 9.1. These files contain some important meta data in the resource fork. Using the standard FILE IO functions I can only get to the data in the data fork. Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The OpenG LVZIP library also contains a sub library called macbin. In there is a VI MACBIN Open Resource Fork that should allow openening the resource fork of a Macintosch file and use the resulting file refnum with the normal LabVIEW File IO nodes. At least that is how it did work until LV 7.1. Haven't tried that on newer versions.
