Tape: Making Application Packages

Public Access Software today officially released version 1.0 of its latest software endeavor called "Tape".

Tape is a new Mac OS application that will allow software developers to quickly and easily create application "packages" for use on Mac OS 9.0. Using simple Drag 'n' Drop techniques anyone can turn a folder of related files into an application package.

Tape handles the creation of a relative alias pointing to the "main" file in the package and correctly sets the folder's Finder Info flags to be recognized as a package under Mac OS 9. Tape can also optionally scan the target folder for mistakes in formatting such as multiple alias files at the top most level.

The Tape package also includes the "BoxCutter" Contextual Menu Module which can remove the package setting from any appropriate folder independent of Tape and Mac OS 9.0.

Tape requires a PowerPC-based Mac OS computer running Mac OS 8.5 (or older with Navigation Services available). BoxCutter requires any PowerPC-based Mac running Mac OS 8 or newer.
