For "modifying a document's Finder information (type, creator and Finder flags)." Should "be compatible with all members of the Macintosh family and System 4.1 and higher."

Of the 17 different programs I tested for setting file type and creator, this is the only one that worked perfectly in System 6. One drawback is that it can only operate on a single file, to do another file you need to launch it again. Also, having both a "Done" button and a "Close" button isn't immediately clear - Choosing "Done" is shortcut for choosing "Close" and then choosing to save changes.
