a Mini vMac Extra


aspack-1.0.0.zip (info) a zipped hfs disk image and checksum file. The disk image can be mounted with Mini vMac. Includes source code.

asPack is an application to convert a file you select into AppleSingle format.

AppleSingle format saves all the parts of a Macintosh file (including the data fork, the resource fork, file type and creator, the creation/modification dates, and other meta data) into a single simple sequence of bytes that can be transferred to non Macintosh file systems without losing any information. But that is not what asPack is intended for. asPack is intended for use with FDisasm. It is an alternative to GetRsFrk, so you can look at the entire file, not just the resource fork.

asPack saves its result in a file named “bin” in the same folder as the asPack application (creating “bin” if it doesn't already exist, and overwriting if it does). After running asPack, you should next use FindRes.

The related program asUnpack is the inverse of asPack, unpacking an AppleSingle file named “bin”.

See the Compiling page for instructions on compiling asPack from the source code.
