"plutil -convert xml1 YourFileHere" works fine for me. If you're smart enough to know you want an xml file, you're smart enough to type that. :)

Worked great! I used this to convert a feed (no longer available on the 'net) that NetNewsWire had saved in binary plist format, that I needed to get back in readable format.

I think the plist helper is fantastic. I am too lazy to screw around with plists, and frankly reformatting and manipulating them is not a good use of my time. This app makes it a snap to get plists into a format that deos not annoy me and inhibit my frenetic work day tasks.From there I can get a lot done by cutting out the noise that is present in plists.
