Need to change or get a file’s type or creator code? Got the Developer Tools installed?

Look in the /Developer/Tools directory for command line utilities GetFileInfo and SetFile.

These are quite useful if, you know, you have to deal with those people living in the past, using an old, outdated operating system like Mac OS 9… ;)

(Update: Looks like Mac OS X Hints has a blurb on GetFileInfo and SetFile as well.)

There are also other goodies in the /Developer/Tools direcory, but we’ll deal with those later.
