This module contains some convenience routines for file-manipulation on the Macintosh. All file parameters can be specified as pathnames, FSRef or FSSpec objects. This module expects a filesystem which supports forked files, so it should not be used on UFS partitions.
This module has been removed in Python 3.0.
The macostools module defines the following functions:
Tell the finder that some bits of finder-information such as creator or type for file dst has changed. The file can be specified by pathname or fsspec. This call should tell the finder to redraw the files icon.
Deprecated since version 2.6: The function is a no-op on OS X.
Note that the process of creating finder aliases is not specified in the Apple documentation. Hence, aliases created with mkalias() could conceivably have incompatible behaviour in some cases.
This module contains routines that give Python programs access to some functionality provided by the finder. They are implemented as wrappers around the AppleEvent interface to the finder.
All file and folder parameters can be specified either as full pathnames, or as FSRef or FSSpec objects.
The findertools module defines the following functions:
