       macsave - Save Mac files read from standard input


       macsave [ - options ]


       macsave  reads  a  sequence  of Macintosh MacBinary files from standard
       input and writes the files it contains subject to  the  options  speci-


       In  the  absence  of  any  options,  macsave  reads  standard input and
       silently writes the file(s) it contains in MacBinary format, giving the
       output  files ".bin" extensions and placing them in the current working
       directory.  Subdirectories are created for embedded folders.

       -3     Write files in fork format (.info, .data and .rsrc files.)

       -f     As -3, but empty data and rsrc files are not created.

       -r     Write resource forks only (.rsrc files.)

       -d     Write data forks only (.data files.)

       -u     As -d, but the codes for CR and LF are interchanged,  the  file-
              name extension is .text.

       -U     As -u, but there is no filename extension.

       -a     Write  files in AppleShare format.  This option is only valid if
              the program is compiled with support for  some  form  of  Apple-
              Share.  The current directory must be a valid AppleShare folder.

       -s     Write extracted files to standard output in MacBinary format.

       -l     List every file extracted (and  every  directory/folder  created

       -v     Like -l, but more verbose (implies -l.)

       -i     Do not extract, give information only (implies -l.)

       -q     Ask  the  user  for  every  file/folder  whether  it  should  be
              extracted (implies -l.)

       -V     Gives the patchlevel of  the  program,  and  other  information.
              Other options are ignored and the program quits immediately.

       -H     Give  short  information  about  the options.  Other options are
              ignored and the program quits immediately.


       As this is a beta release, there may still be some problems.
