Type/Creator Database 2000.5

Rated /5

An enormous database of Type and Creator codes.
Every Macintosh file has two four-character codes associated with it – its type and creator code. The Creator code is unique to each application and enables the Finder to attach documents to their parent applications so that when you “double click” on a document icon MacOS will open it with the correct application. The Type code enables the application to differentiate among its files. This program is a collection of over 30 000 of these Macintosh Type/Creator codes (Apple does not provide such a database) and is useful if you can’t manage to open a file with the softs installed on your Mac as, using this database, you will be able to find out the soft that was used to create the file.
