Usenet multi-part file tool available Apps
I just released MacPAR OS X for free download. MacPAR is an OS X user interface for the PAR utility, to easily create PAR archives or to recover missing files in a chain of multipart files (like .001, .002 etc.) by using .PAR files (like .P01, .P02). Nowadays everybody should add PAR files to their uploads of multipart split files on Internet newsgroups. With the PAR utility it is possible to recover any missing part (e.g. that didn't manage to get thru to your news server).

The code for Par has been developed in the Parchive open source project on I designed a user-friendly Mac interface for OS 10.1.2 or higher to make working with PAR very easy. This first release limits the creation of archives to batch-file mode only.

The MacPAR OS X project is part of the recently started Mutsu project on for the development of Applescript Studio programs. Mutsu is a repository for Applescript Studio applications and code snippets, and you also can find MacPAR's source code there.

I hope people will enjoy working with Par as much as I do!

[Editor's note: I don't do much with usenet groups, but if you do, this PAR solution sounds pretty interesting.]
