10.4: Get Info window doesn't show all files
Authored by: Hal Itosis on May 26, '05 08:42:29AM
It is worth noting that the Get Info window does not necessarily provide access to ALL the localization files inside an application. (And indeed, no access at all in other types such as PrefPanes, etc.).

Anyway, I just updated Pages to version 1.0.2, and did the Get Info route to remove everything except English and Swedish. Hit the remove button and away they went. (GeekTool reported 3 MB in the trash). Fine.

Then I fired up Youpi Optimizer, which found an additional 7 MB hiding inside the Pages package. They were in its /Contents/Frameworks folder, under various subfolders:
SFCharts.framework
libiconv.framework
libxml.framework
SFStyles.framework
SFInspectors.framework
SFPartitions.framework
SFControls.framework
SFDrawables.framework
SFMovie.framework
SFRendering.framework
MediaBrowser.framework
SFAnimation.framework
SFUtility.framework
SFProofReader.framework
SFTables.framework
SFLicense.framework
Dennis.framework
SFArchiving.framework
SFWordProcessing.framework


So, as nice as Tiger has improved the Get Info window... it's still not the best method to remove unnecessary localization files.
