1.2a
22 July 2004

Access extra file info and much more.

Overview

The ACP is very much a 'Unix' system rather than a 'Mac' system. Unix intrinsics govern the behaviour of OS X disks, and the ACP gives you total access to this logic - something the Finder will oftentimes not even hint at.

You are able to govern protection modes, special user flags, see mounted device info, created Unix symbolic links, create Unix hard links, track Unix symbolic links, and so forth.

You are also able to flag resource forks, see exactly how much of a file size is its resource fork, scan your hard drives for files with resource forks, or scan your drives for files with hard links.

You cannot access most of this from the Finder; with the Xfile Suite, if it's available in Unix it's available here as well.

What's new in AppleCore Project

Version 1.2a includes Xstrings and unfork, a tool to extract forks from files.

This might take a while coming, but it's sort of a 'beta' in that it's not feature finished. The Finder replacement is very interesting. I've been using Path Finder, but that is excruciatingly slow. This one is fast. There's a bit of everything, from the near-trivial to the high-brow.

OK, this one *does* work on 10.3 *and* it's not past its due date. So far, I've got one quibble with Xfile, the only one I've used so far. If I select an item and click "Delete" in the toolbar, it gives the the options to "Destroy" (permanantly erase), "Cancel" (obvious) and "Recycle" (move to Trash). Only thing is, "Recycle" is either permanantly erasing the item, or moving it to a trash folder I can't find. I also find that contrary to the developer's claim on the website, Xfile is slower than Finder or Path Finder. Other comments to follow as I use the software.

Disregard my previous about "Recycle" deleting files. Turns out the Trash folder for that was somehow set to 300 (d-wx-------) instead of 744 (dwrxr--r--) like I thought it was. Once I changed it to 744, Path Finder let me see what was in there. XFile is still too slow for my tastes, though.

This package does not have a price tag. The MU editors should be changing this soon. The name is also wrong. It's 'ACP Demo 1.2a'. It is a demo, and time-limited, but only because updates will make it obsolete, and at such time a new download image will be put in its place. It is not the entire ACP but only a small portion thereof, but it is neither nagware, shareware, or crippleware. And it is definitely free. As for the previous outdated file, our apologies. Illness got us way behind. This package will be renewed in October with a new upload and will work until then.

It is a demo of an app, or suite of apps, that costs $39... Of course, demos are always free and usually feature- and time-limited, that is why they are demos.

None of the programs work. One bounce on the dock, then they disappear. Thus, a poor grade.

It requires 10.2, and says so. RTFD.

The documentation (such that there is) says this: "10.3 should be fine too." RTFD yourself.

"None of the programs work. One bounce on the dock, then they disappear" The same happened to me in 10.3.4!

Lots of useful stuff here. If I could pick and choose what apps I want, maybe I would bite. Other (read: free) utilities do the same things, but may take up more disk space, which this author is quick to point out. I would rather SpamStopper (by RailheadDesign) take up 800k more on my hard drive than have S3 (from this guy) take up $44 dollars of my money. (SpamStopper outputs javascript, too, which S3 does not.)

Where's the $44? I downloaded for free. I don't get it. I don't use JavaScript anyway - why use it for email addresses? Go that far, and you have to great GIFs to display them. What's needed here is a program lets you drop whole HTML files on, and it will obfuscate all mailtos at once.

$44 for this? You have to be kidding. It's little bits of some kid's programming class! Most bits are useless, all are ugly, none are finished and NONE are worthy of being Mac software.
