DESCRIPTION

apple_dump dump AppleSingle/AppleDouble format file.

OPTIONS

-a FILE|DIR
This is default. Dump a AppleSingle/AppleDouble file for FILE or DIR automatically. Extrapolate FinderInfo type from absolute path. If FILE is not AppleSingle/AppleDouble format, look for .AppleDouble/FILE and ._FILE. If DIR, look for DIR/.AppleDouble/.Parent and ._DIR.
-f FILE
Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be FileInfo.
-d FILE
Dump FILE. Assume FinderInfo to be DirInfo.
-h, -help, --help
Display the help and exit
-v, -version, --version
Show version and exit

NOTE

There is no way to detect whether FinderInfo is FileInfo or DirInfo. By default, apple_dump examins whether file or directory, a parent directory is .AppleDouble, filename is ._*, filename is .Parent, and so on.
If setting option -f or -d, assume FinderInfo and doesn´t look for another file.
