If you're talking about "PC Exchange", then I'm not sure if the layout was ever
published. What I found out about it is in the mkisofs/mkhybrid source code.

I don't know if there is a 'standard' way ... the HFS support under Linux
can make the resource fork and finder info appear if the files are in CAP,
AppleDouble or Netatalk format.

HFS support under IRIX makes the files appear if they are in 'XINET' format.
