NAME

Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary - read binary property list files

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



        # use directly
        use Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary;

        my $parser = Mac::PropertyList::ReadBinary->new( $file );

        my $plist = $parser->plist;

        # use indirectly, automatically selects right reader
        use Mac::PropertyList;

        my $plist = parse_plist_file( $file );



DESCRIPTION

This module is a low-level interface to the Mac OS X Property List (plist) format. You probably shouldn’t use this in applicationsXbuild interfaces on top of this so you don’t have to put all the heinous multi-level object stuff where people have to look at it.

You can parse a plist file and get back a data structure. You can take that data structure and get back the plist as XML (but not binary yet). If you want to change the structure inbetween that’s your business. :)

See Mac::PropertyList for more details.

    Methods

new( FILENAME | SCALAR_REF | FILEHANDLE ) Opens the data source, doing the right thing for filenames, scalar references, or a filehandle.
plist Returns the Mac::PropertyList data structure.

SEE ALSO

Some of the ideas are cribbed from CFBinaryPList.c
