Mac oddity - Terminal Fun 1
So I was looking at my files today via the terminal and noticed an @ sign next to one of the files. This is sort of odd since the file was just a text file and I downloaded it as part of an open source project.
Notice the special apple command
ls -@ to show the details of what that @ means. It indicated extra metadata on the file. Thanks to Flester's blog on the post.
Some other details of the @ sign is over on mac hints.
I fixed it just by
cat changes.txt > newfile.txt; rm changes.txt; mv newfile.txt changes.txt.
Also for the finderinfo 32
mkdir temp cp file temp/ cp -XR temp newtemp cd newtemp ls -@l
