RE: Re: Versioning MacOSX files with Resource Forks...solutions?

Here's a tool that will let you examine what files have alternate
streams: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Streams.html.

It seems like it would be pretty tricky to generically support alternate
streams / resource forks. If you have a Windows Subversion server, and a
Windows client, sure, that could be done, but what if you have a Linux
Subversion server, and Windows and Mac clients? What if a client is
using the FAT filesystem? What if you want to burn the files to a CD (I
don't think the ISO filesystem will get the alternate data streams)? It
seems that this is not going to be practical to support because
different filesystems have different implementations of alternate data
streams--it's filesystem-specific. Unfortunate, but true.

        As I said I said I don't know enough about how much the actual
APIs
relate, but try looking at http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs-multiple.htm
