Hello everybody,
                     I'm looking for some kind of exhaustive list which =
maps filename extensions onto creator and filetype for MacOS ...say =
files with extension ".pdf" could be mapped on to a default filetype =
"PDF " and default creator "CARO" (4-byte values).

I could get hold of these mappings using a freeware tool and a bit of =
reverse-engineering but I'd rather stick to a standard mapping if =
anything like that is available. Somebody had told me I could retrieve =
this info from a Sytem-file on my iMac but I was unable to open this =
file and view its contents.
Would be grateful to anyone who knows something about this and can help =
me out.

Regards,
Nandini Hengen
