"Useful program, but this version isn't"

April 23, 2007  |  By doctor.lex

 |  Version: ResKnife 0.6 b4


This review was originally posted on
As an OS X Intel user, this is a lifesaver when it comes down to editing resource forks without paying ridiculous amounts of money for a commercial editor. The (t)rusty ResEdit requires Classic to run, which is impossible on an Intel Mac, and running ResEdit in an emulator like SheepShaver is a kludge.

Unfortunately this version does't allow me to open anything else than .rsrc files, so it's back to 0.6b3 for me...

P.S.: The nineties called, they want their proprietary compression format with non-backwards compatible version upgrades back. Please distribute the next version in a .dmg or .zip file.

"Works well"

It worked well for me on 10.4.6 with MacBook Pro. It is small, free and does what it says, what more could you want.
