Uninstall programs installed with the Apple Installer
Authored by: Jaharmi on Dec 21, '07 10:14:09AM

The BOM won't indicate what files or folders were added, created, moved, or deleted by scripts. It also won't show what else has been done through scripts in the package — for example, I've seen installers which create users and groups.

The BOM will only list what files and folders were directly bundled together into the package. Therefore, using this tip, you can only see what was intended to be installed as part of the package, minus whatever actions were taken by any of the scripts in that package.
