    unstuff xtra on Mac

    Level 7
      Hello,

      Does anyone know of an xtra that will unstuff .sit files on Mac? Any other
      Mac solution that might avoid using .sit files but still allow downloading
      from an ftp site and automatically decompressing without losing the Mac
      specific info in the file?

      Thanks,

      Brian

          In OS X any downloaded file will be examined as it downloads. The user
          will be asked where to put the file and whether to open the file or not.
          There is no way to bypass these steps that I know of.

          You can zip the file on a Mac, zip is now the default compressor for
          files in OS X. If the user selects to, the file can be unzipped when it
          downloads.

            Maybe I wasn't clear -
            I'm downloading the file using Director. Currently I'm using DirectXtras'
            FTP xtra, but may also try downloadNetThing. I don't think the rules for
            downloading a file from the OS itself apply here. Thus I need an xtra that
            will do the unstuffing or unzipping.
