Make a Path Name for HFS

By Tom Taylor, Santa Clara, CA, MacTutor Contributing Editor

Extending Modula-2 for HFS Support

The Macintosh low-level File Manager is probably familiar to anyone who has programmed in another language besides Modula-2 on the Mac. Until the Heirarchical File System was released, there wasn't a tremendous amount of motivation to use the low level parameter block routines from Modula-2. The high-level File Manager routines implemented by MacModula-2 were usually enough to get the job done. With the release of the Mac Plus, however, the high level calls are not enough. Therefore, I decided to implement a library module that includes all of the low-level File Manager calls specified in the new chapter of the File Manager.

The Low-Level File Manager

Most people are already familiar with the low-level File Manager. For those who are not, a little introduction would be helpful. First of all, the low-level File Manager routines exist in ROM. The high level File Manager routines described by the File Manager Inside Macintosh chapter do not. Instead, the high level calls consist of glue code that calls the low-level routines. Each low-level procedure takes one parameter: a pointer to a parameter block. This parameter block, however, is used to hold many input and output parameters. The File Manager chapter does an excellent job of showing which fields of the parameter block are used for each call. Before using the module presented in this article, you must read the File Manager chapter of Inside Macintosh. In fact, it would be most helpful if you were to read the new chapter that explains the File Manager in terms of both MFS and HFS. There are six different types of parameter blocks. Three of the six blocks contain variant records.

A typical low-level File Manager call looks like this:

PROCEDURE PBCallName
                   (paramBlock: PtrToParamBlk;
  async: BOOLEAN) : OsErr;

The first parameter is a pointer to one of the six different parameter blocks. Generally, I find it easiest to declare the actual block as a variable and then pass ADR(block) for this parameter. The second parameter, "async", specifies whether the routine should be executed synchronously or asynchronously. It is beyond the scope of this article to explain how to use asynchronous calls in an interpreted system like MacModula-2. Therefore, my example program will always perform synchronous calls by passing FALSE for this parameter.

How it all works

The definition module, PBFileManager.DEF, is very straightforward. All of the parameter block types and procedures are defined. The implementation module is a bit trickier. Basically, every procedure makes a call to the procedure LowLevelPB passing four parameters: the parameter block address, the asynch flag, the value of the A-Trap that ends up calling the actual File Manager procedure, and a routine selector for those procedures that are implemented with the same A-Trap (which are new, HFS only calls). The LowLevelPB procedure immediately makes a call to an assembly routine that calls the toolbox. The assembly routine (source in PBFileManagerASM.ASM) must unstack the A-Trap value and the asynch flag. If the call is to be performed asynchronously, the asynch bit in the trap word is set. In either case, the A-Trap is installed and executed and the returned value is returned back to the Modula-2 calling procedure (and returned back up the many levels of procedure calls!). This has to be the simplest library module ever written, yet one of the most powerful because it gives the Modula-2 programmer almost complete control of the Mac's file system. That is why I thought it is an appropriate subject for this month's article.

An example program

Any module is incomplete without an example program. The program here, MakePath.MOD, shows how to find the complete pathname to a file. The program puts up the SFGetFile and allows the user to select any file. Then the program displays a window with the file's complete path name (up to 255 characters, anyway...). Besides showing how to use a few of the low-level File Manager routines, it also shows how to determine if the host Mac is running the HFS file system and whether a volume is an HFS or MFS volume. Because of this, the program will run on any Mac, HFS or not (fat or skinny, regular or Plus, etc.). Macintosh Technical Note #57 says that the location 03F6h contains a global flag that says whether HFS is installed or not. Therefore, the variable HFS in MakePath.MOD is declared as:

 VAR
 HFS [03f6h] : INTEGER;

If HFS = -1, the Macintosh is running MFS, else it's running HFS. When HFS is installed, it's also necessary to determine whether a volume is a MFS or HFS volume. The PBHGetVInfo call will return a field in the parameter block called IOVSigWord. This variable will be D2D7h for a MFS volume and 4244h for an HFS volume.

For HFS volumes, the PBGetCatInfo call is the basis for building path names. By passing -1 in the ioFDirIndex field, PBGetCatInfo will return information about the directory with the WDRefNum passed in the ioVRefNum field. Every directory on an HFS volume has a different directory ID. The root directory always has directory ID of 2. Not only does PBGetCatInfo return the directory ID (in ioDrDirID) and the directory's name (in ioNamePtr), it also returns the directory's parent ID. By calling PBGetCatInfo until the directory ID equals two, the path name can be built.

Fig. 2 Path Name Program constructs Path

Here are the steps for building the PBFileManager module and the example program:

--- To make the library module... ---

1-Assemble PBFileManagerASM.ASM

2-Link (using MDS or Consulair Link) the PBFileManagerASM.REL file using the file PBFileManagerASM.link

3-Run RMaker on PBFileManager.r

4-Rename PBFileManager.REL.RSRC to PBFileManager.REL

5-Using M2 Compiler, compile PBFileManager.DEF and PBFileManager.MOD

--- To make the example program... ---

1-Run RMaker on MakePath.r

2-Rename MakePath.REL.RSRC to MakePath.REL

3-Using M2 Compiler, compile and link MakePath.MOD

4-Execute MakePath.LOD and have fun!
