DESCRIPTION

apple_dump dump AppleSingle/AppleDouble format file.

OPTIONS

-a FILE|DIR

This is default. Dump a AppleSingle/AppleDouble file for FILE or DIR automatically. Extrapolate FinderInfo type from absolute path. If FILE is not AppleSingle/AppleDouble format, look for .AppleDouble/FILE and ._FILE. If DIR, look for DIR/.AppleDouble/.Parent and ._DIR.

-f FILE

Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be FileInfo.

-d FILE

Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be DirInfo.

-h, -help, --help

Display the help and exit

-v, -version, --version

Show version and exit

NOTE

There is no way to detect whether FinderInfo is FileInfo or DirInfo. By default, apple_dump examins whether file or directory, a parent directory is .AppleDouble, filename is ._*, filename is .Parent, and so on.

If setting option -f or -d, assume FinderInfo and doesn't look for another file.
