mac_alias 1.1.0

Generate/parse Mac OS Alias records from Python

mac_alias lets you generate or read binary Alias records from Python code. While it is written in pure Python, some OS X specific code is required to generate a proper Alias record for a given file, so this module currently is not portable to other platforms.

Credit is due to Wim Lewis <>, whose work on reverse engineering the alias format was extremely useful in writing this code.
