The ACP/Xfile Test Drive
Are you ready to step up?
Some things take a while. This takes no longer.
The new ACP/Xfile Test Drive. Free as in beer. Download it now. Free.
The Test Drive contains nine (9) applications. All you do is mount the DMG in the download and you're ready to go. No cleanup required: this Test Drive doesn't leave remnants (but see the 'readme' for further information).
- ACL manages your access control lists.
- macTag is a coming 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. And was once named by the '2600' group as the 'ultimate hacking tool'.
- Rixstamp 'timestamps' files, directories, anything, using current, first of the month, 'epoch', and 'rollover' values.
- 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 super-fast super-powerful ACP file manager - the 'standard-setter'.
- Xfind finds things in files, summarises file sizes, the blocks used, extended attributes.
- Xscan scans filesystems and helps isolate security weaknesses.
