Utilities for accessing Apple’s HFS volumes

HFS is the “Hierarchical File System” used on modern Macintosh computers. With this package, you can read and write Macintosh-formatted media such as floppy disks, CD-ROMs, and SCSI hard disks on most Unix platforms. You can also format raw media or file into an HFS volume.

This package contains a number of different tools

  • Several command-line programs hmount, hls, hcopy, et al.
  • Tk-based front-end for browsing and copying files through a variety of transfer modes MacBinary, BinHex, text, etc.
  • Tcl package and interface for scriptable access to volumes
  • C library for low-level access to volumes

Support for Apple’s new Extended Format HFS+ is currently not available.
