sorry ... don't know how to delete postings here. but i got it working with the suggestion of someone in a reply to my original thread.

ditto had to include, so you had to have

ditto "/volumes/chimera/" "/targetvolume/targetdir/"

rather than:

ditto "/volumes/chimera/" "targetvolume/targetdir/"

'cp -Rp' is enough - doesn't ship with resource forks
Authored by: mblakele on Oct 27, '02 03:07:26PM

Chimera doesn't ship with resource forks, so this is sufficient:

cp -Rp /Volumes/$FILENAME/${APPNAME}.app /Applications/

of course, there's no guarantee that Chimera won't add resource forks some day... You can check for resource forks with:

find /Applications/ -print0 | perl -0ne 'chop; print "$_\n" if -s "$_/..namedfork/rsrc"'
