xattr

0.1

= xattr == DESCRIPTION Xattr provides the xattr (setxattr, getxattr, removexattr, listxattr) functions in a nice object-oriented wrapper. Ruby/DL is used so no compilation of modules is necessary. Extended attributes extend the basic attributes associated with files and directories in the file system. They are stored as name:data pairs associated with file system objects (files, directories, symlinks, etc). == SYNOPSIS Using the library: require "xattr" xattr = Xattr.new("/path/to/file") xattr.list # => [...] xattr.get("...") xattr.set("...", "...") xattr.remove("...") Using the provided command-line tool: $ xattr README.txt com.macromates.caret $ xattr README.txt com.macromates.caret {column = 9; line = 26; } $ xattr README.txt com.macromates.caret "{column = 0; line = 0; }" {column = 0; line = 0; } $ xattr README.txt -com.macromates.caret {column = 0; line = 0; } $ xattr README.txt $ == REQUIREMENTS * Mac OS X 10.4 (for now...) == INSTALL Using rubygems: $ sudo gem install xattr Using setup.rb: $ sudo ruby setup.rb
