Developer's Description

Resorcerer is the premiere general-purpose commercial resource editor for Macintosh computers running System 8, 9, or Mac OS X. Relied upon by thousands of Mac developers all over the world, Resorcerer features a wealth of powerful yet easy-to-use tools for easier, faster, and safer editing of Macintosh data files and resources. Whether you have to parse a picture, change one bit in a 500MB data fork, write an AppleScript to patch or build a file, transfer resource-fork-based resources to data-fork-based resource files under Mac OS X, create a scripting dictionary, build icon suites with all 144 variant icons, change the structure of existing custom resources, debug an AppleEvent from another application, design and edit a custom resource with 40,000 fields in it, find every reference to a control, try out a dialog interface under Aqua, see a Unicode glyph, magnify the screen, disassemble some PowerPC instructions to English, or any of dozens of other resource- or data-related viewing and editing tasks, Resorcerer's magic will make you more productive and quickly save you time and money.

What's new in version 2.4.1

  • Primarily a bug fix release, but there are several new features to sweeten the pot and give you an incentive to update now.
  • There is a new Color Cursor ('crsr') Editor, for both Classic and Carbon versions.
  • In addition to Hex, Binary, ASCII, and Unicode, the Hex Editor now supports a new column view of the data, displayed as Macintosh two-byte text.
  • The Hex Editor now maintains its view settings (which columns you like, which type style you want) persistently.
  • The PowerPC Disassembler now disassembles all Velocity Engine (Altivec) instructions to English as you point at them. (The Hex Editor includes an Instruction column when opening resources of type 'pwpc'.) Here is a sample of the output.
  • Pasting text (such as C or Rez source code) into the Hex Editor is now much easier. Extraneous non-hex characters are now optionally ignored instead of keeping the entire paste from occuring.
  • Plus, a variety of smaller features and enhancements to the File, Dialog, Icon Suite, and Menu Editors. (The application now has a much nicer OS X application icon to ponder in the dock, too.)
  • Unfortunately, the process of porting Resorcerer to Carbon introduced a bunch of bugs. Since then, over three dozen reported bugs have been fixed.
