    I would also be interested in information on where or how one could
obtain information concerning the structure of the Desktop files (Desktop,
Desktop DB, Desktop DF).

    Thanks,


    Gord Beatty

  Hi,
     Could someone tell me where exactly to find some documentation on the
desktop DB for an external HFS volume?
  I came across some interesting info on Thomas Tempelmann's developer's
site and it said that one would have to request Apple for further technical
info (?!) but the website didn't really furnish the kind of details I need.
  I basically need info. as to how and where exactly (in the image) this
file has to be present and what its exact contents (structure) are...links
to any sample code, open sources or headers related to this would be greatly
appreciated.

  The technical notes for HFS+ and the related documentation for HFS volumes
(part of Inside Macintosh) don't seem to contain elaborate info on this
either.

  Regards,
  Nandini Hengen

  PS. Thanks to everybody who replied to my previous mail on 'embedded
volumes'.... I've come to the conclusion I'll need one after all.....at
least at a later stage (once I start dealing with HFS+) to ensure that my
CD-RW HFS+ volumes don't get erased on earlier Macs...
