permanently converts binary to xml
Authored by: klktrk on Jun 13, '05 02:20:57PM

Using this modification in emacs will permanently convert your original binary format .plist file to xml format.

Wouldn't it be better to set up e-macs so it would convert the temp file back to binary format again upon finishing your edits?

So? Why does it need to be in binary? To save a few k? There's no point to the binary format for preference files (but using CoreData with plists can get big, so binary is faster and smaller in that case).
