I have made a new release of hfsutils, version 1.17b.

Besides a few bug fixes and code/documentation cleanups, this version also
includes a working `hattrib' command-line program to change the attributes of
HFS files (type/creator codes, plus the invisible/locked flags.) See the
included hattrib(1) man page for details.

For completeness, the previously posted Perl script to display the partitions
on a raw Apple-partitioned disk is also included in the distribution in the
file "hdisk.pl". (It is not formally a part of the distribution yet, so it
won't be installed by `make install'.)

The release is available here:


Also, the official home page for hfsutils is here:
