What kind of file is in the Stuffit archive?
The Macintosh filesystem is much more complex than other filesystems. Mac files
have two "parts," which are called a "data fork" and a "resource fork." The Mac
directory entry also contains metadata about the file, such as information
about the application associated with the file.
PCs can not handle two-part files. The "RSRC" file is the Mac resource fork and
For files such as images or other doents, the RSRC file contains the file's
identifier (Type and Creator codes), the file's icon, and the like.
For Mac-specific files like fonts or applications, the RSRC file contains
PostScript code, and objects such as windows, dialogs, icon and file reference
information, object code, and the like.
In any event, you can not use the RSRC file on a PC. It contains ac-only
information not usable or meaningful on a PC.
What kind of data file is it? If it's a picture, you use a program that can
view pictures. if it's a word processing doent, you use a word processor.
What is it?
