By Hugh Hood (CSA2) AppleIIWorks Envoy is a ‘faceless’ application for Mac OS X (10.4.x Tiger through 10.8.x Mountain Lion) with a two-fold purpose. First, it provides for Mac OS X Finder recognition of Apple II AppleWorks Files, presenting both a custom Mac Finder icon as well as a custom ‘Kind’ description for AppleWorks Word Processor (AWP), Database (ADB) and Spreadsheet (ASP) files. Second, the application implements a Spotlight metadata importer for AppleWorks Word Processor (ProDOS type ‘AWP/$1A’) files that not only indexes the text content of these files, but also sets (2) ProDOS-related custom metadata attributes that display in the ‘More Info’ portion of the Mac Finder ‘Get Info’ window.

AppleIIWorks Envoy is compiled as a 4-way Universal Binary for both PPC and
Intel, 32-bit and 64-bit, and runs under Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger) through Mac
OS X 10.8.x (Mountain Lion).
