XRay 1.0, a file/folder information utility for Mac OS X.

“XRay offers users a much more detailed view of files, folders, applications and volumes than Mac OS X’s Show Info window does,” Brockerhoff said. “Permissions can be changed without resorting to obscure terminal commands. Type, creator and extension can be examined and changed, and their effect on file-application binding is shown immediately. Types, creators and extensions can be selected from pop-up menus built from the system’s own databases.”
XRay can be run from the Finder’s Contextual menu, the Services menu, or by dragging and dropping items onto the application’s icon. Third-party developers can write plug-ins that further augment XRay’s capabilities. Preview, Custom Icon and Hex Edit plug-ins are in final testing and will be release over the next few weeks.
XRay is US $10 shareware. You can download a two-week trial period during which XRay will run with full functionality; after that, Administrator authorization can be used only once during each run. Mac OS X 10.1 is required, and version 10.1.3 is recommended.
