Ticket #240 (closed defect: invalid)
setup install does not preserve MacOS X resource forks
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:|

I use the attached Setup.lhs file to do some Mac-related magic (which I unfortunately do not understand) on files built with wxhaskell on MacOS X. The key point about this magic is that it allows me to run a GUI from the command line. Without doing the magic, the GUI will open, but it will not react to any user interaction.
I think the problem is that whatever mechanism we use to copy the binary over (say to /usr/local/bin) does not preserve the magic. That is, if I run it directly after a runhaskell Setup install, I get the non-reactive GUI. If I do a cp geni /usr/local/bin by hand, then the GUI reacts, presumably because on MacOS X cp also copies the magic over.
Sorry for being so vague. Let me know if I can help in any way. -- Eric Kow
