Bare Bones Software has released Super Get Info, a new utility for Mac OS X designed to serve as a replacement for the “Show Info” command of the X Finder.
According to Rich Siegel, the founder, president and CEO of Bare Bones, Super Get Info lets you:
View and edit the Mac OS type and creator codes for a given file;
View and edit the Unix owner, group, and permission settings for files and folders;
Modify a file’s creation and modification dates;
Copy a file’s full path name, via the Clipboard, as well as with drag & drop;
Open one information window for each selected Finder item, so that multiple selected items can be viewed and edited.
“With the release of BBEdit [an HTML and text editor] for Mac OS X, we led the way in building a bridge between the power of Unix and the accessibility of the Mac OS,” Siegel said. “Super Get Info continues that work, by making the basic properties of files and folders accessible without requiring users to resort to the Unix command line.”
Super Get Info costs US$20 to purchase. A fully functional demo version that expires after 14 days is available from
Bare Bones Software’s Web site. Super Get Info requires Mac OS X 10.0 or later.
