Easy conversion of multiple Safari .webloc to PC .url files
Authored by: fds on Jul 30, '04 10:33:48AM

Being a Terminal guy myself, here's a little tidbit I think you'll appreciate:
there's an easy way to get to the resource fork of a file with any of the traditional UNIX tools by appending /rsrc to the file name.

eg. you can do

cat test.webloc/rsrc

Or you could use grep or anything you fancy on those pesky resource forks.

This way you should be able to avoid the use of DeRez.

Holy smokes, that rocks. You can even edit it as a file with an editor.

Be careful if you do that - resource forks have to follow a strict format, or else they just plain don't work. And they're binary, not ASCII files.
