New: The ACP/Xfile Test Drive for Mojave
Tell your friends.
BELGRAVIA (Rixstep) — Some things take a while. This will take no longer. It's a new 'Test Drive' for the ACP's Xfile Collection.
This Test Drive contains nine (9) applications (plus a framework) and, together, they take less disk real estate than the accompanying documentation.
The nine applications - all filesystem-related - are ACL, macTag, Rixcomp, Rixstamp, Tracker, Xattrib, Xfile, Xfind, and Xscan. All you do is double-click the DMG in the download, and you're ready to go.
- ACL manages your access control lists.
- macTag is a futuristic method of organising files not in directory hierarchies but with textual tags.
- Rixcomp compares two anything - and sees file types, volume IDs, inodes, and of course contents.
- Rixstamp 'timestamps' files, directories, anything, even using the 'epoch' and a reasonable 'rollover'.
- Tracker is the heavy-duty system monitor used for tracking changes to your file system. For any reason.
- Xattrib gets at the 'attributes' of an item: type, sticky bit, set IDs, 'ugo' access, special user and system flags.
- Xfile is the ACP file manager.
- Xfind finds things in files, or summarises file sizes, blocks used, and extended attributes.
- Xscan scans your filesystems for stuff, and follows the seminal 'Hacking Exposed' to help you isolate security weaknesses.
