hpcopy (1) - Linux Man Pages

NAME

hpcopy --- copy files from an HFS+ volume

SYNOPSIS

hpcopy [-m | -b | -t | -r | -a ] source-path ... target-path

Description

hpcopy copies files and directories from an HFS+ volume. If multiple files are to be copied, the target path must be a directory.
 

Since Macintosh files contain two forks, which are not representably in Unix file systems, copies use one of several translation modes:
 

-m
Mac Binary II is a format for binary file transfer. Both forks of the Macintosh file are preserved. This is the recommended mode for transferring arbitrary Macintosh files.
 
-b
BinHex also preserves both forks of the Macintosh file. In addition, the encoded file contains only ASCII characters, making it suitable for electronic mail transmission.
 
-t
Text copies only the data fork of the Macintosh file, while the contents of the resource fork are lost. In addition, this mode translates end-of-line characters. This translation should be used for text files.
 
-r
Raw Data copies only the data fork of the Macintosh file, while the contents of the resource fork are lost.
 
-a
Automatic mode applies a set of predefined heuristics to determine the appropriate translation. This is the default if no mode is specified.
