A mac file does not have to have a resource fork. All Mac files have finder flags (like labels, creator and type codes) but they don't get transmitted when sending files through FTP, email, etc. "They may be composed of two pieces, called forks, i.e. a data fork and a resource fork. Only one of these two forks may be empty." Note it says "may" be composed of two pieces.<br><br>What is the name of the file your brother gets with the finder info?<br><br>I remember programming in MacOS 7 and 8, most data files like images, word docs, etc. did not have resource forks. When you tried to open it in ResEdit (Resource Editor) it would say "This file does not have a resource fork. Would you like to add one?"<br><br><br><br>

that one is Cocoa Applications step by step.<br><br>It's pretty good. I like the step by step stuff for using Project Builder and Interface Builder when I forget how to do stuff.<br><br>Cocoa Programming (the big purple book) is still the best book.<br><br>Other than that, I find most of the information on the web. There are some .mac accounts with blog type pages that have some interesting information some times. And then the rest is around here and there. <br><br><br><br>[color:blue]My only goal in life is to live forever - so far so good!</font color=blue>
yup, I have that book then. I was hoping to find opinions about cocoa in a nutshell.<br><br>those blog sites have been one of my best resources too. I find most of them through http://www.cocoadev.com/<br><br>-Matt<br><br>
