HFS/2 - A Hierarchical File System Driver for OS/2

HFS/2 lets OS/2 users seamlessly read and write files on diskettes formatted with the Hierarchical File System, the file system used by Macintosh computers. With HFS/2, Macintosh diskettes can be used just as if they were regular diskettes.

HFS/2 is based on Robert Leslie's hfsutils.

Package overview

HFS/2 consists of several parts:

Current status

HFS/2 is in an experimental stage, and still has bugs and problems. It currently works with 1.44MB diskettes and CD-ROMs.

See the version history for more information.


HFS/2 is free software, licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. The source code is included in the archive.
