Swapping forks from the command lne
Authored by: sabi on Dec 06, '01 12:13:49PM

I wrote a function for zsh that does something similar:

swapforks () {
cp $1/data $1.data
cat $1/rsrc >| $1/data
cat $1.data >| $1/rsrc
rm $1.data
}

so you just tell a file to 'swapforks', and it exchanges the data and
resource forks. That works for me until I can afford the upgrade to
Resorcerer 2.4.

Another good one is to clear the type/creator of a file:

ClearHFSMetadata: aliased to SetFile -t '' -c ''

which you sometimes want to do, and File Buddy doesn't (or didn't) let
you do this.
