Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-262) Binary property list format
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2016 23:39:20 GMT


Sky Kelsey commented on CONFIGURATION-262:

This is a pretty annoying issue, but mostly it's annoying because it fails to modify binary
plists silently. Can you please at least log an error when a plist can't be modified?

If you encounter this problem, you can convert your plist to XML format like this:

{{plutil -convert xml1 Info.plis}}

This utility is available on Mac OS X 10.2+

> With OS X 10.4 Apple introduced a variant of the plist format that is compressed using
a binary format. That would be nice to support this format with a BinaryPropertyListConfiguration
> I haven't found the specification of this format. 
> The plutil tool can be used to convert between xml and binary plist files.
