a Mini vMac Extra


exportfl-1.3.1.zip (info) a zipped hfs disk image and checksum file. The disk image can be mounted with Mini vMac. Includes source code.

ExportFl is an application to use in Mini vMac (version 3.0.0 or later) to export files from the emulated computer to the real computer.

It only exports the data fork of a file, not Macintosh specific information such as the resource fork, the file type, the file creator, and comments.

ExportFl opens a small status window to show what it is doing. Initially it displays "Ready to export file". While exporting a file it displays "Running, type command-period to abort", superimposed with a progress bar that shows percent completed. When done it displays "Done, ready for another file".

important : You should avoid switching away from Mini vMac to another application until ExportFl says it is "Done". If you switch away while ExportFl is still "Running", the exported file will not be valid yet. By default, Mini vMac pauses emulation when it is not the active application. (Even in this case, once you switch back to Mini vMac then ExportFl should complete successfully.)

If you would like to export plain text, ClipOut may be more convenient.

If you would like to import files, see ImportFl, the opposite of Exportfl.

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

August 31, 2016 version 1.3.1 updates the URL in the about dialog. Also, source shared with other Mini vMac extras has been updated, which fixes one bug: ExportFl should now not crash in other emulators such as SheepShaver (though it still won't do anything useful).
