Both creator and type information have been in the MacOS file system at least since the mid-80's, if not from the very beginning. I did Mac development in that time frame (e.g., GUI-driven barcode label printing software), and used the file type distinction (e.g., to handle label design files differently from content data files). As I mentioned earlier in this thread, this information was not exposed to the end user directly. However, it was detectable, e.g. when MacWrite saved a document as "TEXT" versus native MacWrite format, a different icon was used for the document. -jn- -- ; Joel Neely joeldotneelyatfedexdotcom REBOL [] do [ do func [s] [ foreach [a b] s [prin b] ] sort/skip do function [s] [t] [ t: "" foreach [a b] s [repend t [b a]] t ] { | e s m!zauafBpcvekexEohthjJakwLrngohOqrlryRnsctdtiub} 2 ]
