Ummm, not quite. There are two forks to every file under HFS alright -- the
resource fork and data fork, but the properties (metadata such as type,
creator, modification date etc) of a file are stored completely seperately
from both of these. Have a look at
NG11-0 for more on resources, and
http://devworld.apple.com/techpubs/mac/Files/Files-99.html#HEADING99-0 for a
description of HFS.
-- /dev/hdb5 -- 500 million bytes of free space, spinning all alone in the night.
