Thread: plutil 1.6 - binary plist converter for Windows/Linux

    Default plutil 1.6 - binary plist converter for Windows/Linux
    I have updated plutil.pl to version 1.6.

    This version adds support for arbitrary data sections (type 4), 8 byte and negative integers and XML special characters in dictionary keys.

    This allows handling conversion of .mdbackup files, .strings files and com.apple.springboard.plist.

    It is still at:

    Default Fails with Undefined subroutine &main::ReadBType8
    I think I have your 1.7 version and get the below error:

    Undefined subroutine &main::ReadBType8 called at (eval 13) line 1.
    in ReadBObject at plutil.pl line 845.
    in ReadBObject at plutil.pl line 845.
    in ReadBObject at plutil.pl line 845.
    in ReadBObject at plutil.pl line 845.
    plutil.pl v1.5

    I am running it on the .i7_mtl_06h.dat file that is created by MobileToDoList2 app for 1.1.4. Here is the rest of the output:

    Old: .i7_mtl_06h.dat, from: binary, to: text
    TryName: .i7_mtl_06h.dat
    TryName: .i7_mtl_06h.dat
    BinaryToXML:
    Offsets are 2 bytes
    Object Refs are 1 bytes
    There are 195 objects in the file
    The top object is at 0
    The Offset Table is at offset 2145

    The file .i7_mtl_06h.dat.text is created but it is empty. I just briefly looked at the script and it seemed like the name of routine is constructed based on a type and the type happens to be 8. Is this an unsupported type? Any help?

    Type 8 is not yet handled.

    Thanks. Is it planned for a future version?

    The script does not seem to work anymore with Itunes 8.2. Any chance you could release an update ?

    The script is not dependant on iTunes - what problem are you having?
